 $5400 Bronze edition of 10 (18"L x 12"W x 6"H)

This was such an enjoyable commission to do. I love historical things and my mother has told me stories of how she and her family gathered around the all-important radio to hear their special shows. She grew up on a dairy farm in Ohio during the Great Depression and World War II and the radio, especially in remote farm areas was a life-line to the world, the news and was often a source of comfort and company. The woman who commissioned this bronze is honoring her husband and his passion for reading and their local library. He actually learned to read by listening to the radio announcer reading the Sunday Funny papers.  This is the clay original - the 'paper' is sculpted in wax and has cartoons etched into the surface.

This new release bronze sculpture is mounted onto a shaped hardwood base with a turntable on the bottom for rotation of the finished sculpture. The first of this bronze edition of "Sunday Comics" is going to the Walker Branch Library in Walker, Michigan. You can see how the sculpture was made on my blog.

"Sunday Comics" is a bronze sculpture of a little boy reading the funny papers along with the radio announcer. It features  a cathedral radio from the 1930's-1940's and the boy is laying on a traditional braided rug that was found in many homes during those times.
