Blaine Black Biography scroll down to view works

"I have always loved to create.  I find sculpting very fulfilling and an escape from the stresses of everyday life.  Although I started sculpting for personal satisfaction, I have come to find it very rewarding when one of my crreations brings joy to another.  My goals now include producing work tht is uplifting as well as beautiful. 

I appreciate the permanent nature of broze.  Capturing a moment in time and motion in a stationary form is a challenge that I find appealing.  I also enjoy the patina process; it is an important aspect of my work.  The paina must have depth, beauty, and enhance the form.

I work most often in  a style that allows me to blend my love of nature and God's creations with my own freestyle abstract visions.  I try to capture the essence of my subjects rather than duplicating the details.  To me a sucessful piece keeps your eye moving and exploring the artwork.  It produces positive emotions and has a feeling of movement.  I see my hummingbird hovering in it's floral surroundings as I look at it.  If I can do that with my art, the I feel I have been sucessful"
