Dana Masters: Sculptor and founder of On A Whim

I'd like to introduce to you my collection
of pewter figurines, ornaments, & other
Whims...
...but first I'd like to take a few steps
back; I was graduated from Edinboro
University of Pennsylvania with a
bachelors degree in fine arts. After
graduation I headed for Williamsburg, VA
where I spent several years honing my
skills in different media including
designing and carving jewelry and
Christmas ornaments. But sculpting gave me
my greatest satisfaction. So upon advice
from a friend, I headed for New England
where the hub of the pewter and jewelry
industry is located. My in house experience
with New England Companies gave me a
chance to work on projects for Companies
such as Disney, Hudson Pewter, & General
Motors. In 1992 I founded On A Whim. Drawing
upon my experiences in the industry and my
past I began designing, sculpting & producing
my own lines .
I gather inspiration from everywhere;
from observing life around me to family &
friends, and of course a couple of terrific
cats. Once a design is solidified in my head I
carve the original in wax; often using
several different types of wax to create
the effect I want. I then have various
Molds made of the original from which
castings of fine lead free pewter are made.
Finally each piece is hand finished to bring
out all of the intricate detail. Each
creation becomes a part of me. I strive to
express a sense of movement and interaction
between the characters or with the
viewer, and I'm not satisfied with a piece
until I can feel the life in it emerge.
That's the true challenge; bringing them
to life. Being able to share these intimate
WHIMS with all of you gives me great
pleasure. It's great fun, and I hope that
you enjoy my "On A Whim” characters as much
as I enjoy creating them.
