Build A Sculpture Garden

You Can Participate In Building A Sculpture Garden!

I have a location in Texas to build a sculpture garden.

Imagine a garden where you can rest and play. Water trickling through bronze works of art, the scent of flowers in the air, unique bells to ring and to play, creative surprises to delight. The garden will be full of water fountains and sculpture. Some interactive, others simply to enjoy.

It is easy to be a part of building this sculpture garden.

The Old Building

Old Building

Rotted Foundation

Old Building

Patchwork of wood!

Old Building

Plants embedded in wood.

Rotten Foundations

Foundation corners are rotted away.

Dangerous walkway

The front needs a safe walkway that people will not trip over.

Rotten Floors

Floor to ceiling, plants and moisture have their way!

This old building is falling down.

Together you and I can tear it down and build a sculpture garden full of light, the tranquility of trickling water, the sweet scent of flowers, and the delight of interactive sculpture and bells.

How You Can Be Part Of Building A Sculpture Garden

There are several steps to building the sculpture garden:

1.) Tear down the old building.

2.) Build a base for the Sculpture Garden. Several of the bronze sculptures need a base that will hold a lot of weight!

3.) Create bronze sculptures and water fountains.

4.) Install the artwork, plant flowers, and start the water flowing.

Thank You Gifts!

I have Thank You gifts of art for those who help fund the building of this garden. Scroll down to see Thank You gift descriptions and pictures. This is a collaborative project. You and I together can take an old rotten building and replace it with a place to sit, ponder, and enjoy all that is good in life.

Phoenix Water Fountain

Kickstarter.com donations will help to build a beautiful Bronze Phoenix Water Fountain.

Imagine walking under Phoenix wings that arch over you as you enter a beautiful Bronze Sculpture Garden, water sheening down the Phoenix's feathers.

Sketch of Phoenix Sculpture

This is a rough sketch of the Phoenix Water Fountain. I work from life as I sculpt. Eagles residing in a Raptor Center are waiting to pose as my models. The Phoenix head and feet will be modeled after the eagle. The feathers will look like flames burning with life and rebirth.
