Banjo (Fine Art Bronze Sculpture)
Banjo (Fine Art Bronze Sculpture)by JK Designs
~Banjo is a small bronze sculpture. This musical maquette is very unique in that it has Carol Gold's famous style. Her work is very smooth, and her patina use is just as iconic. This piece is stunning from every angle, and is the perfect gift for musicians and music connoisseurs alike. ~Carol Gold is a fellow in the National Sculptors' Guild and is available for commissioning small maquettes to monumental sculpture. Carol Gold was born in Hartford, Connecticut and grew up on a dairy farm in western Massachusetts. Between 1956 and 1960 she studied art at Cornell University, Boston University and the Museum School in Boston, but it wasn't until 14 years later, when her children were old enough for her to return to sculpting full time, that her work began to develop and change. Bronze casting techniques learned at the college of Marin in 1977 and 1978 enabled Carol to build her own foundry, outside of San Francisco, CA which she operated for 12 years. This intimacy with the entire casting process profoundly affected the evolution of her sculpture. She began to think in terms of the potential of the metal and started to use wax as her creative medium rather than the clay of her initial sculptures. Simplicity is an important concern in her continuous search for forms with to best express motion and mood using the human figure and an occasional animal as subject matter. For the past twenty years, Carol's work has been widely exhibited in the u.s. and Canada. Her sculpture has received numerous awards at national exhibitions including the National Sculpture Society and the North American Sculpture Exhibition, as well as receiving public art commissions including the Bakersfield City Center Project in Bakersfield, California; the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas; the Entry to the City of Bellflower, CA; Paramount, CA; and Pittsfield, MARead More
