“Sarah” is a life-sized bronze sculpture of a lovely young lady from Dallas, Texas. When we flew out to
photograph Sarah she was 10 ½ years old, with beautiful long red hair with golden highlights. We asked her what she liked to do when she was sitting outdoors in the beautiful garden area behind her parents’ home. Sarah quickly answered: “Read a great book!” So, we had her go get her favorite book, which was author Natalie Babbitt’s “Tuck Everlasting”. If you look closely you will see Sarah’s sculpture is reading that very book.
With Sarah’s tall, slim figure and her natural grace, it was a real joy to sculpt her in clay. My challenge
is to always portray my subject’s personality as well as her physical appearance. In this sculpture you
can see “Sarah” as a quiet, reserved young woman with an inner confidence and a calm assurance that she can handle any situation with poise and grace.
The final sculpture was cast into bronze by Art Castings of Loveland, CO. As always, Anita made two
trips from Ohio to Colorado to supervise the work and assist in the special custom patinas in order to
assure the final look portrays her subject as she intended. “Sarah” was then shipped to Dallas, where
she is now installed in the garden area of her parents’ home. This Sculpture would make a wonderful
addition to Library or Garden settings.
