Original, One of a Kind, Terracotta Sculptures

Here are some original terracotta pieces.  Some are new.  Some have been living in my studio for some time for whatever

reason.  They are all one of a kind, no molds made on them.  I hope you like what you see!


The Dedication

(Man) 13" x 5" x 3.5" (Woman) 10" x 4" x 3"

This piece is my depiction of how I though Joseph might 

have reacted with the baby Jesus.  I can just imagine

the weight of responsibility he must have felt, to raise

the Son of God.



My Aching Back

9.5" x 3.5" x 3"

I've been there, have you?  I did a series of pregnant

women, when my daughter was pregnant with our first 

grandchild.  This is one of them.



Barefoot and Pregnant

6" x 4" x 3"

I really like this piece.  It makes me smile.




Girl Talk

8.5" x 13.5" x 7" (on pine base)

This piece was inspired by a photograph I saw.

I love how no matter what race we are, we are

all essentially the same.




Sun Hat

7.5" x 3" x 3.5"

This quick sketch, left in the raw terracotta

is one of my favorites.





10" x 5" x 3.5"

This expectant mother has beautiful lines.




Just Out of Reach

11.5" x 12" x 8.5"




19" x 15" x 11"

This is a very joyful piece, taken from my Women of the Way




The Nymph

25" x 6" x 5"

This is a really lovely piece that you can get for a song.

As you can see in the second picture, she has a couple of fingers

broken and a slight crack at her knee.  She would normally

sell for $1100.




Autumn Breezes

17" x 3.5" x 2.5"

This is a handbuilt slab style

piece, tall and elegant.




Flower Girl

10" x 3.5" x 3"

Another one from the pregnancy series.




Backward Glance

13.5" x 8.5" x 7

She's undecided.  Should she keep going,or turn back? 

Have you ever felt that way?







10.5" x 3.5" x 3.5"

Beautiful glazed piece on a pine base.




Sweet Hour of Prayer

6" x 3" x 4"

This is the original sketch I did for the Women of the Way

Sweet Hour of Prayer piece.  It's smaller than the reproductions,

but it's rare that I do a sketch before the original.  Very nice

for collectors.




Young Girl Praying

5" x 4" x 2"

This is another sketch before I did the 

Small Girl Praying for my Such As These collection.

Another rare find for collectors.





7.5" x 3" x 4.5"




Her Daddy's Chin

16" x 6" x 5"




Angels Long to Know

(Standing Angel) 17" x 7" x 6"

(Kneeling Angel) 11" x 14" x 5"

This piece exploded in the kiln during 

firing.  I still think they are beautiful,

damaged though they are.  They can be

bought as a pair, or separately.





Safe Haven

22" x 14" x 7"

Another slightly damaged piece.  You can

perhaps see a little breakage on the second

picture by the little girl's feet.  This is a beautiful,

impressive piece.  Normally $1500.




Hold Me Jesus

22" x 10" x 10"

I call this my Christian journey piece.

Each hand represents a different place

we are in at various times.  We want to be the 

top hand all the time, confidently reaching out

to Jesus.  But other times we are climbing

out of the pit, barely holding on, others we are

so tired, another holding onto someone elses
