About the Artwork

This is a collaborative piece I made with American bronze sculptor CT Whitehouse. Please see Artist comments.

Artist Comment

I have long admired the elegant work of bronze sculptor CT Whitehouse. For some time we`ve talked about the idea of working together on sculpture and this is our first collaborative piece. CT`s vessel, titled, "Infinity" is held by my stone hand which is supported by and part of my neo-classical base. The title reflects the potential limitlessness of creative collaboration which, with the right combination of people and intention, can be manifest in virtually any endeavor. Through this collaboration, we`ve created work that expands and ennobles our respective art forms. The first sculpture, "Infinite Possibilities" is well titled for both this work of art as well as the future of our collaboration. CT and I develop design ideas through dialog and drawings. When a design is polished and agreed to, the process of making the sculpture begins. At his studio, Whitehouse meticulously creates the bronze vessel that will rest in the stone. This is a multi-stage process that begins with shaping and carving clay, on through orchestrating all the steps of the foundry process. Once completed he sends the cast bronze, without patina, to me. I then begin the painstaking process of fitting the complex shape into the carving block. When that work is completed and the bronze vessle rests snugly in the stone block, I then proceed with carving the balance of the sculpture in stone. When the carving is finally completed, I return the bronze to Whitehouse who then applies the patina finish. The final bronze and the final carving are then reunited to create the complete sculpture.

  • The ArtParkS Guarentee

    All the sculptures on the website are described by the Artists themselves stating the materiel they are made from and their dimensions. If they are stated to be suitable for outdoors they have a guarentee of 10 years subject to the effects of weathering which will alter their colour and finish over the years unless you give them  regular cleaning and maintenance. For instance Bronze and to a lesser extent bronze resin/cold cast bronze will aquire a green patina, usually rather sought after and all could attract moss  lichen and a greeny pollen especially under trees which should be removed regularly with warm water and washing up liquid.
    Iron and steel will oxidise(rust ) and this falls outside our guarentee.
    Organic materiel like wood, bark willow is variable and depends to a great extent on where it is sited and you should discuss any guarentee direct with the Artist as this too falls outside our Guarentee.
