The Desktop series of Civil War busts was begun in 2001 as a means of making sculpture available to a wide range of the public.   Each bust is sculpted in clay with painstaking attention to detail in likeness, uniform and insignia. The clay bust is then hardened and used to create a mold which is used in the casting of the final sculpture

ORDERING INFO

The medium used is a type of ground White Marble that is fused with a bonding agent to give the finished piece the appearance of finely chiselled Marble. The designation "Desktop" is derived from the size of the bust.

At 5 inches in height by 3 inches in width the sculpture is large enough to be pleasing to the eye yet not interfere with work taking place at the desk.

Edition in Cold Cast Bronze on Black Marble - $170.

Edition in Cold Cast Bronze on grey granite- $210


Price: $25
