About

From The Mermaid Story Trilogy to The Mermaid Collection . . .

Designed exclusively for people who appreciate the personal connection to the artist and his/her work, “The Mermaid Collection” was conceived to offer an alternative to mass produced images of the stereotypical depiction of mermaids. My mermaids are not shy. They are sensuous beings living in a liquid world; essentially weightless, they swim, float or fly effortlessly through a world unknown to most humans. They are a playful, mystical community of sensual creatures and in my mind, perfectly designed for a planet that is over 70% water.

The Mermaid Collection is the direct result of my years figure sculpting, my interest in the sensuous nature and design possibilities of the iconic "Mermaid" image and the development of my books: The Mermaid Story Trilogy - now available on Amazon.

I use Pixologic's Zbrush to create my detailed 3D designs. That 3d information is fed into my state-of-the-art Moonray 3d Printer. Some complex models take as many as 20 hours to print, then the rough prints are hand filed and sanded to remove the intricate support systems. When I'm satisfied with the result the finished model is sent to the bronze foundry where a mold is made then filled with wax. After it has cured the wax is removed and carefully inspected and refined until it represents an accurate duplicate of the original. From there it goes to the ceramic room. It is dipped repeatedly over the course of several days until it is fully encased in a hard ceramic shell. The wax is melted out and the molten bronze is poured in. The final stage is a time consuming process of grinding and sandblasting the bronze and applying the appropriate patina. Then the piece is finally ready for the photo shoot.
The designs for jewelry pieces are sent to the 3D printing facility Shapeways where they manifest the beautifully finished renderings in silver using a lost wax process similar to the bronze casting.
