Welcome to my blog

Thank you for taking the time to look at my plaque work. I've been sculpting specifically for the plaque industry for about a decade now. I've worked with many of the major architectural signage foundries in the U.S. as well as their many dealers across the country. I am particularly capable of capturing likeness on bas relief portraits. I've sculpted portraits of famous people, private families, pets, and poeple of note from various institutions. My pricing is fair and my lead times are very reasonable, about 2 weeks. Rush services are available.

In addition to portraits, I can produce scenery, animals, buildings, lettering and custom borders and patterns. I have sculpted government and military seals of various sizes. I have taken flat relief patterns and created sculpted versions from them. My carpentry skills make various kinds of custom patterns also available. I make molds and resin patterns for all of my pieces so that if damage occurs anywhere along the way after approval, I can quickly and inexpensively re-produce the same pattern within a few days.

I would love to provide you with sculpted imagery for your plaques. Please contact me to discuss your next project, (801) 477-4188.

Nascar portrait 1

Most sports people probably recognize this guy. The plaque company that hired me to do this portrait had done it twice before, unsatisfied with previous renditions of the portrait. So they let me take a crack at it and had a good reaction from at least the foundry workers that saw it. I still have not aqcuired a good photo of the finished bronze, but this video shows them putting both of the plaques these portraits went on in the ground and there are some pretty good video shots of the finsihed bronzes here and there throughout the clip. Check it out.
