Unusual And Spectacular Gift For Mother’s Day

Texas artist creates portraits
It does not matter what the size: portrait bust, figurine, or life-size they all capturing forever the childhood and memory of being a mom.

I have had several father’s contact me over the years. There is nothing that they can give that is more personal than their own child. Some of these are simple small sculpted figurines, others are life-size sculpture of their child.

A mother captures a time and a memory of their child- a son’s first boots. Notice the boots are on the opposite feet.

Whatever the size, when someone gives a commission sculpture they are not only giving a gift, they are giving a family heirloom. They are capturing forever a time and a memory.  Many ask, “Can you sculpt my daughter for my wife”, but many times the child may be grown, and I use photographs from when they were little and capture them in a moment and time.

A mother captures a special scene from a photograph in a family heirloom of bronze.

Don’t worry if you feel this type of project can’t be completed before Mother’s day. I often create an introduction for the mother, allowing them to become a part of the creative process.  Together we bring to life, what she and her husband have created.

In this family heirloom the dog another family member, who was at the end of his life, was added. In “Grandpa’s Swing” the little boy is eating a cookie, eyed of course by the dog. The little girl is reading the book, “If You Give A Mouse A Cooke”. The swing really swings.
