A bronze art commission is the pinnacle of any sculptor. John Tolmay has produced numerous commissioned pieces of original sculpture for discerning clients. He has been commissioned to produce awards that honor achievements for Abbott Pharmaceuticals. He has produced a stunning stag for the garden and dinning hall of Deer Path Inn, Illinois. He has also created awards for Safari Club International (SCI). He created a unique piece for the Klineburger Award. And beyond that he continues to create commissioned bronze sculptures and statues for discerning collectors. John Tolmay welcomes commissions to sculpt for Hotels, Hospitals, Banks, Insurance Companies, Interior Designers, Foundations, Museums, Schools and Property Developers.

January Update

Well so much for this guy putting his feet up and taking it easy. No, no – I have been as busy as hell with commissions and new pieces, another trip up to Montana to take delivery of new pieces and then attending the Dallas Safari Club. Just after Dallas I was approached to produce a piece for an award with an edition of 50. It will be awarded to one person per year who best exemplifies Courage and Perseverance throughout the year. I feel humble and honored to have achieved what I was asked to create.

Two other commissioned pieces are now delivered, namely the Mountain Monarch and the Mongolian Argali sheep – both sculptures took me way out of my comfort zone – however despite the challenge both my clients and I are very happy with the results.

You’ll find 3 new pieces have been added to the gallery so head over there to have a look.

Red Stag at the Deer Path Inn

I spent a good chunk of 2015 sculpting a life-size red stag and an accompanying bust. The stag now has pride of place in the Deer Path Inn garden and the bust hangs in the English Room. A visit is highly recommended – a stunning setting, excellent cuisine and top-level service. Many thanks to the team at the Inn for their support and enthusiasm for the project and none of this would have been possible without Cal and Rane Paulson from Billings Bronze in Montana for coming down to North Carolina and making the mould, the casting and then assistance with the final installation at the Inn.
