I manipulate metals and minerals and bonding solutions in order to provoke emotional responses from people I will usually never meet. That which happens in the process some people call art. My talent for creating icons and illusions turned into a lifetime of manipulations... in various pigments, bronze and steel, some quite large, which loom in museums, schools, collections and public places all over Texas. Here on this blog you can watch my creative actions and insights unfold...

My New Sculpture!

My sculpture of Frank Hamer for the City of Navasota was the awesome pinnacle of my art career. And it has taken awhile to come down to earth afterwards.  

It was such a strong concept  I cast the maquette as well, which I call "Texas Town Tamer."

Texas Town Tamer. You can read all about Frank Hamer in my other blog : russellcushman.blogspot.com

It is great, stalwart Americans like Frank that inspire me. This original bronze of Ranger Frank Hamer is TWENTY-FIVE inches tall. Not including the thick, cedar wood base.

Once the City Marshal of Navasota, Ranger Hamer looks good checking out Cedar Creek, where the real-life Frank Hamer used to cross every day on his rounds.

 Right now the sculpture can be viewed at:
Texas Ranger Hall of Fame, gift shop in Waco, Texas
 THE FRENCH MARKET,  at Tokoly Consignments, in Navasota, Texas
