pillars, etc.) into sculptural things of beauty.

and mercury-free urethane cold resin) and his recent explorations include life
size sculptures of mold-casted concrete and hollow, cement fondue work for open
air spaces. He also creates bronze sculptures per commission and his work is al

be private, corporate or public areas. His vision is a much greater number of

anatomical balances of both human and animals to create a sense of
movement and portray the flow of energy …” GvE
