I sculpted this 3" tall mermaid in wax and cast it in 24k gold for a private client. The sterling silver copy is #2 in the edition and no further copies have been made. Is she Water or Fire?
The BEE MASK and
Here are a copper sculpted bee mask and a  painting made up with numerous layers of translucent laquer and india ink on a copper plate. I produced these as talismanic art when the Honeybee population began to mysteriously diminish.
The Bee Mask was worn with a Beekeepers coveralls and netted pith helmet.
Tina is a portrait sculpture of a friend, which I sculpted in wax, molded, and produced 1 resin copy.
My Clown is sculpted from stack-laminated popler and polychromed in enamel. The desktop is plate glass/ The sculpture is 32" high, about half life size. The image was taken from the official Circus Program. The piece took approximately six months to complete.
These marionettes are Ben and Lea, a pair of puppets which I created for a group of children's plays at our community theatre, the "Folly"- an outdoor theatre.  Ben and Lea are built from standard puppet materials, except for the heads, which are radio controlled.  It takes one adult and two children to animate the puppets- an adult and child manipulating the body and head from the platform above, and one child on each radio control.
The eyes open and close, as well as looking from side to side, and the mouths open and close; all operated by an RC helicopter control. We hope this year to give them voice as well.
Here's an idea of the scale and the overlying structure of the suspension system. Ben Snyder, my buddy a who is a master maker in any scale, is 5'10".  The marionettes are suspended from a plate which swings approx 160 degrees from the back to the front of the stage, and can be rotated as well.
The radio control operates 4 servos- two miniatures inside the eyeballs to control blinking; one to look side to side; and a heavy duty servo to open and close the mouth.
Here are the kids who performed in their own plays, for which the puppets were mere hosts and commentators. The creature on the right is Grandma Turtle, who narrates the Fish Tales.
The heads of our marionettes were fabricated from a sturdy armature to give them the superstructure from which to suspend the mechanical parts.
The faces were sculpted around the armature with a four part polyethylene compound.
Under normal circumstances, I would have sculpted the heads first, and added the mechanicals later, but this was an exploratory journey. I decided that I would have to design and build the sculpture and the animatronics simultaneously
