inital clay build up

Statue.com is pleased to be one of the first companies to offer a statue of our new President Elect Barack Obama!  It is a beautiful thing to see a boy or girl grow to become not only  a good man, a fine woman, but also a long awaited leader.

The creative process is a dream seeking forms–becoming something real, visible & meaningful.

In the words of our soon to be 44th President:

“We are the change that we seek. We are the hope of those boys who have so little, who’ve been told that they cannot have what they dreamed, that they cannot be what they imagine. 

Yes, they can.”
