Myself and my crew (including my son Dorian) spent almost two years building this park, on site, every day. We did all the stonework that isn’t at grade level and isn’t attached to a building. The walls we built with limestone quarry blocks are functional as well as unique. And the walls were far less […]
Carved in commemoration of 9/11 during the first International Symposium held in the United States. A dog and a cat are fighting on the back of a tortoise, and a little girl is running away, her hands over her ears, frightened. The contractors hired to move the 25,000 pound piece did a great job.

This column in Goodale Park in Columbus, Ohio, originally installed in 1899, has deteriorated badly. I have been commissioned by a Centennial Preservation Group to re-carve the heads. My proposal is to rebuild the missing parts with clay and then to re-carve new sandstone blocks to match the clay. The gate and column were a […]

Last year the organizers decided to add sculpture and asked me to participate. I had these pieces left over from roughing out an earlier piece, and drilled them and glued in steel pins on […]

The school marm worm in the apple seems to have had her fill of the students today. No matter how studious the teacher’s pet. Man, I loved an all day sucker when I was a kid. And I loved having fun creating this preschool for the kids. These were there for several years. Hundreds of […]
