A new Buffalo Sculpture

After The War Department sold out in Dallas last year it was clear that another large-scale multifaceted buffalo sculpture was called for and so – never one to avoid taking on a big challenge – herewith my latest offering still in the clay.

At this stage I can only guess at how heavy the piece will be and I will be keeping the edition number very low. A sixth buffalo will be added to the back and then all the texturing and detailing will be applied.

My daughter Georgie, and quite possibly my harshest critic (being an artist herself), calls this sculpture one of my ”signature pieces”. I am under firm instruction to “stick to my knitting” and just let the piece do the talking – let the buffalo speak for themselves.

Yet to name it of course – but watch this space…

    Hey, John.
    We enjoyed visiting with you down in Charleston- seeing some of your wonderfully realistic bronzes.
    Now, back at home I’m having a grand time going through your web site. Those scenes bring back lots of memories. I think that we would have had a great time hunting together !
    Hope things are going well with you.

    Every bit as impressive as “The War Department” John… and that says a lot! Well done, my friend. Your attention to detail and anatomy bring your sculptures to life.
