Bronze sculpture of boy running with airplane

Zac, my oldest boy, first modeled for this piece when he was about nine years old. His long, sinewy, but well-muscled body was perfect for this piece, just as I had visualized it. It was as though his arms really were wings reaching out as far as they could. Of all the sculptures I have created over the years, “Wings” is one of my favorites. It’s a very therapeutic piece for me; it represents the freedom and the joy we so often lose while focusing on our demanding and busy lives. The mail-order glider becomes a symbol of our dreams and aspirations. With this creation, I wanted to express childhood and fascination with flight. To me, flight represents release from our restraints and rising above our problems. With flight, we often gain that all-so-important perspective on the world, on life. I feel like I have to take a couple of flights each year just to rise above the earth and rediscover some of that vision.
