Ocean in Motion
is a bronze sculpture featuring 3 Sea Otters swimming amongst Bull Kelp created by Fred Dobbs
Sculptural works depicting wildlife in the Pacific Ocean. Inspired by a close association with the Ocean, from exploring tide pools, to being in the water and on it. I have drawn my inspiration from my experience of curiosity and wonder with what nature provides.
The sculpture measures 24" X 24" X 72"
Bronze Sculpture titled Pearl
Three years in the making, Pearl made her debut at the Castlegar sculpture walk in the spring of 2015, and later that same year won the prestigious peoples choice award at 'Sculpture Splash'. Inspired by an abalone shell found at Heaundea beach in South Korea, Pearl developed from the question, where do Mermaids come from? The sculpture portrays a mermaid sleeping in an abalone shell and suggests that this is her birthplace. Her name is derived from the notion that abalone produce pearls in nature.
Pearl will be produced as a limited edition bronze sculpture, in four different hair colour patina options. The choices for hair colour will be brunette, blonde, auburn and winter blonde. Pearl measures 18"D X 24"H X 36"W and weighs 165 lbs.
is a bronze sculpture that depicts a life size Raven holding a chess piece ( a rook/tower) in its beak. This is the third in a series of Raven sculptures exploring the impact these animals have on human culture around the world. The symbolism of this sculpture is drawn from a story of British origin, whereupon it is said that at all times there must be Ravens at the Tower of London, otherwise the British Empire shall fall. A significant story that holds the Raven in a special place a reverence.
