Wildlife of North America is carved in very
decayed wood and then cast in both white bronze and pewter or a clay made from mesquite wood.
Metal oxides are applied for colored accents.
I start my process with oil base clay, then mold image, pour wax, chase, cast into bronze,
finish bronze with air tools, weld areas, chase metal, patina,(an acid wash) add jewelery, high polish,base.
Casey Horn's works in bronze, steel, aluminum and more capture Kanji characters in three-dimensional form. While abstract in design, every piece has a very literal translation for the viewer.
Casey is also featured in the Raitman Galleries on Main Street in Breckenridge

Personally collected driftwood pieces transformed into sculpture, wall art, lamps and bowls.Each piece is inlayed with turquoise,finely sanded and finished with hand rubbed oils.
The Lamps are made from roots of expired bristlecone pines. Various parts are arranged or intertwined to form the whole piece, then married to a base of unaltered granite Talus
I craft playable instruments using cigar boxes, hardwoods and upcycled materials. These vintage looking guitars and banjos have real Americana sound! Add a matching amp and welcome to the blues.
