All of our proceeds go directly to supporting Monarch’s Way, a private Christian school, based in a loving, family environment that is dedicated to helping at-risk girls break free from life-controlling behaviors and circumstances. This program promises to provide the opportunity to transform hurting teens into individuals who know their identity, believe in their purpose, and dream big about their destiny.

Freedom I

This is the first sculpture in a series of athletic women in graceful poses. When I asked my wife what she felt when she first saw this coming together, she said: “Freedom.”

We made her strong, but I feel that freedom is fragile!

In God's Hands

This owner of this sculpture commissioned this piece, inspired by God, Nature, and Joshua 1:7-9

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Prayer for a Cure

A dear friend of mine, who is diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF), recently discussed with me how he was in hiding during the pandemic to keep himself from getting COVID-19. I thought of all the people with this disease who struggled to breathe and who lived in fear because of it.

Lean Back

ISAIAH 41:10

Fear not, for I am with you. Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

This sculpture was inspired by the song, Lean Back, from Capital City Music.

A Shepherd Rests (Moses)

Inspired by a pile of rocks in my yard, I designed a spot for Moses to take a rest. This was one of my more technically difficult sculptures to date since all the sculpture’s angles had to fit existing angles on the rock pile.

Pegasus

In Revelation 19:11 Jesus returns on a white horse. “I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True.”
Who knows if his white horse will have wings or not?

The Horse

This sculpture currently resides on my property as a testament to my love of horses. It’s also a wonderful conversation piece when visitors come around. One of my younger neighbors likes to come by each morning and “feed” it for me.

David & Goliath

When I started on this sculpture, I wanted to challenge my ability as an artist. I wanted to make something gargantuan. Of course, the story of David and Goliath came to mind. In one piece, I’ve constructed both the biggest and the smallest sculptures I’ve created to date. There were some moments when we weren’t sure it was going to work, but as you can see, we fought the odds and won!

Dad's Birdfeeder

We moved my dad into our home for his twilight years. One of his favorite things to do is watch the birds that land on our deck. When I started this bird feeder, I decided to change up my style with more detail. I finished this sculpture on Dad’s 95th birthday and he absolutely loves it.

Armor of God

This piece sat in my yard for at least a year until a friend passionately asked for me to make an element to bless his restaurant as the beginning of COVID was such a challenge. The Armor of God has stood guard over his restaurant, B Street 104 in Greencastle, PA, ever since.

Watchful Eye of a Mother

Not long ago, we introduced The Watchful Eye of a Mother, my first commissioned sculpture. I made this little family of Cleveland Bays for our friends–Scott and Lisa Berg–to enjoy as they pull up to their home. Even the delivery drivers comment on it!

Archangel Michael

Sarah and I were having dinner with a friend who asked if I could make feathers. As I was thinking about it, I envisioned an angel – the Archangel Michael – coming
in for a landing. This piece is designed to be mounted to a landscaped hill or rocks.

Born of a Vision

One of our favorite local charities is Monarch’s Way, a residential school aiming to give at-risk girls skills that will help them heal and thrive. When I approached Carissa, the founder and Executive Director, I told her I wanted to donate any of my available pieces, or a custom-made sculpture to adorn this house of love and healing. She said she envisioned happy girls playing, safe and free of any worry or trouble, to match her school’s mission.

Daniel & The Lion

One day my executive sculpting assistant, Jeremy Jones, told me that when he was doubtful, I would often tell him to “think like David” — the small boy that knew the wind was always in his sails. That boy who knew that he had a powerful God at his back, and that he could not fail at what his mighty God told him to do.

Similarly, when we were between sculptures, I’d asked Jeremy what was on his heart for our next sculpture. He said without hesitation: Daniel and the lions. Another example of God’s protection and provision.

Aaron: The Priestly Blessing

Kiva Chorne, my grandfather, would recite this prayer (Numbers 6:24-26) over me as a child. At the time, I didn’t know or understand this Hebrew prayer.

Still, Kiva’s blessing of faith would eventually manifest in my life, a layer of blessing and protection through the peaks and the valleys.
