Bruce Wayne Batman

 

This piece is a tribute to Bill Finger, co-creator of the Batman mythos. As an artist, I am very particular about crediting sources and inspirations. Bob Kane died with great fame, fortune, and the world's perception him being the sole creator of Batman, while Finger who was the contributing force in Batman's creation from the iconic cowl, cape, the Bruce Wayne persona, to his detective instincts, etc., died alone in his apartment in relative obscurity. I highly recommend "Batman & Bill", a documentary of the crusade by Marc Tyler Nobleman to get Finger his due credit. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.

 Sitting Wolf

 

The wolf (Canis lupus), is the most widely distributed land carnivore. Modern wolves evolved alongside humans, and unsurprisingly are abundant in folklore and mythology of virtually every culture. This is my third wolf (Princess Mononoke, Howling Wolf), and actually fourth if you also count my Werewolf. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.

Siberian Chipmunk

 

The Siberian chipmunk (Eutamias sibiricus) is a species that is native to parts of northern Asia including China, Russia, Korea, and northern Japan. Besides just being cute as hell, they also have an average lifespan of 6 to 10 years, making them very popular within the pet industry. For my piece, two chipmunks are watching over their tree trunk cache which also doubles as candle-lit oil diffuser. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.

Falkor and Atreyu 

"Never give up, and good luck will find you."

 

The Neverending Story was release in 1984, and remains one of my favorite films to this day. Based on the novel by Michael Ende and directed by Wolfgang Petersen, it was the most expensive film made in Germany at the time. The ultra catchy theme of the film, sung by Limahl is like a time portal to the 80's. My piece is based on the scene where Atreyu is riding Falkor the luck dragon in their quest to find the cure for the beautiful Empress. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.

The Little Mermaid

 

The Little Mermaid was published by Hans Christian Andersen in 1837. In 1913, Edvard Eriksen was commissioned to sculpt the Little Mermaid. This famous statue depicts the moment her transformation begins into a human form. My sculpture is inspired by Eriksen's timeless masterpiece and captures her perhaps moments before her transformation as her scales have dissolved into skin. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.
