Delivered to Foundry – The Wrangler

It’s taken a year….but finally got this bad boy to the foundry.

I’ve learned something about how I work. I do my finest sculpting when a piece is allowed to sit for a year and have me come with a fresh eye 8-10 times during that period.

“The Trooper” rides again.

Katie and I hit the road to Fernley, Nevada (East of Reno). Katie’s volleyball tourny in Reno coincided with this trip. We delivered this bad boy to the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetary. It’s going to overlook 7000 veterans graves.

While we were there, we met country singer, Lacy J. Dalton. She was the guest of honor at a ceremony honoring several deceased veterans. What a gracious lady she is. For those that are younger, and are not familiar with her songs, check her out on YouTube. “16th Avenue” and “The Wanderer” are two awesome songs. Her voice is magic.

Buffalo Monument / Finished in Metal

Grateful for a great team of men who make the molds, pour the waxes, pour the bronze, chase the metal.

“American Bison”

Notice the stainless steel supports underneath. They go up inside the buffalo to minimize lateral movement.

Buffalo Monument – Finished

It’s an amazing experience to finish a piece and then be alone with it. Its often numbing. There comes a quiet that is beyond words. A feeling of expansion takes over….a humility.

Finished.
