Jade is an exciting addition to my modern fashion sculpture collection. Jade, a gorgeous Asian woman is sensuous, captivating and down-right delectable. She is featured in a fitted deep V-neckline dress and faux fur stole. Her tantalizing pose highlights her body hugging dress which showcases her alluring figure. Her ankle-wrapped gladiator sandals add to the piece’s sensuousness. Jade’s come-hither expression is sultry and pulls you in. It makes you to want to know what she’s thinking. This cast bronze sculpture is a limited edition of 25 pieces, and measures 26”H x 10”W x 11”L. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this piece will go to to the Wren and Roch Foundation, to further the mission of preventing sexual abuse through education and awareness.
The inspiration for Henry is the result of hours spent researching 1950’s fashion. The models are gorgeous and the clothes are breathtaking, but it’s the fashion photographer that brings it all to life. The lighting, the poses, the vantage point, and the accessories all work together like musical instruments in a finely tuned orchestra where the fashion photographer is the conductor. Without the genius of the photographers, the beauty and the elegance of the fashion would not have been conveyed. The cast bronze sculpture is a limited edition of 25 pieces and measures 24”Hx12”Wx12”L.
No fashion series would be complete without a sculpture inspired by Eunice Johnson and the Ebony Fashion Fair. Eunice’s contributions to the world of fashion and African-American women are legendary. Eunice, a woman of vision, brought high fashion to communities across the nation while simultaneously raising millions of dollars for various charities. Her story was the inspiration for Esther. This sculpture’s beauty and stance evoke strength and self-assurance, traits which Eunice possessed in abundance. This sculpture is dedicated to the memory of Eunice Johnson. She was a truly remarkable woman whose legacy lives on. This cast bronze sculpture is a limited edition of 25 pieces, and measures 27”H x 23”W x 18”L.
Carry Your Courage
Delilah is utterly alluring in her mini bandage dress and sexy ankle wrap stiletto sandals. She is featured wearing Wren and Roch’s edgy leather cuff, “Tan Hide” and is carrying their very elegant “Ray of Moonlight” bag. Delilah not only has great style and panache, she is also supremely confident and self-assured. You must be fearless, and secure with who you are in order to walk a cheetah! Thor, Delilah’s cheetah, is powerful and focused. Thor knows where he wants to go and is taking Delilah with him. This duo is on a mission together –headed for Nolcha Shows Fashion Week September 2017. The cast bronze sculpture is a limited edition of 25 pieces, and measures 26”Hx11”Wx30”L. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this piece will go to the Wren and Roch Foundation, to further the mission of preventing sexual abuse through education and awareness.
