Project: Asian Sculpture

I have recently completed sculpting a direct observation sculpture project at my art studio. I will share more images once the piece has had a chance to dry before I place it in the kiln. The color of this piece will change when it has been heated, and the finishing touches added to the piece.

If you are interested in commissioning a head sculpture, please contact me using the contact form or call me at (602) 618 8079. I work through direct observation and I can also work using photographs to.

Project: The Healing Touch

The Healing Touch” sculpture, created this year, to celebrate the compassionate touch that resonates within us. It is appropriate today as we come together to heal a wounded world moving away from selfishness. With the hope and compassion of a new millennium she reaches out to remind us that when we are called to love unconditionally we heal each other and recognize our more angelic side.” From “Art of Healing” article in the Grand Rapids Press during ArtPrize 2009.

 

The more traditional sculpture, Mercy was originally designed to recognize those who work in the medical profession. The Artist’s sister was a Nurse Practitioner and he created this larger, second sculpture in her honor with the idea of sharing that moment when one touches the heart of another and embraces our more divine nature. Her left arm is gently touching the patient and her right arm is becoming a wing.

We are offering the Healing Touch, an inspiring limited edition bronze, which can help lead others onto a pathway of wholeness and inspire those who visit your healing center. A smaller companion sculpture on a marble base, “Mercy” standing just 21″ tall, is available as a gift to your benefactors, donors and supporters at a very reasonable price.

Please contact us to arrange for placement of The Healing Touch at your location. An appointment can be made for you to speak directly with the artist to work out the final details including inscriptions for the base and the type of base that would work best for you. Please take advantage of making a purchase directly with Ron Head Studios where the Healing Touch is being offered at $15,000. You may purchase a hydro-cal version finished as pictured above right with a beautiful gold patina at $3500. Ron Head Studios was an artist in the 2009 ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

America’s Angels was sculpted after the Mother of an American Soldier saw the sculpture “Courage and Faith” which features a Firefighter with his Guardian Angel. Her son was on his way to Iraq with the United States Army.

The mother of this young soldier has gone on to create a non-profit organization called Angels 4 Soldiers.

It was commissioned to honor all U.S. soldiers who have fought for our freedom in foreign wars. The artist worked closely with the Veteran’s committee to find the images they wanted to be historically accurate, to portray the advances in military warfare and to honor the courage displayed by the men and women of the military.

This series of sculptures were commission by the Fountain Hills Chamber of Commerce. The installation includes 6 bronze plaques and a life size figure. The committee wanted a WWI veteran saluting the flag that flies over the Memorial. A WWI uniform was found in a local museum and a Vietnam Veteran who could fit into the extra small size uniform was the model. Photos were taken for the sculptor to use as reference and the Congressional Medal of Honor was added to his throat. The artist’s father posed for the facial features and added touches of compassion.
