An excerpt from some information on a paper on the wall...
To answer the frequently asked question..
Yes, I've been banging on a guitar for about as long as I've been making sculptures. Yes, my guitars are quite playable. I've been banging on the first one every day since I finished it... until I finished the second one. Yes, they're kind of heavy, around 8 1/2#, still they weigh less than the average Les Paul. Yes, you can try one... by appointment.

SCULPTOURS.. or Sculpture Tours are presented by two professional sculptors and educator, Christine Rojek and Carol Hammerman. And I am proud to have them as my friends. Join sculptours to Discover the iconic and hidden treasures of city's diverse sculpture collection..
One day soon, I will write on Sculptours..
