"As I see it, art is personal. It manifests from the deeper levels of an individual. Because faith is an integral part of my life, when I sculpt, this theme surfaces consistently. Although I employ the full range of sculptural language from representational to abstract, my passion is to express the figure as simply as possible to capture the essence of the pose and create space for the transcendent message to resonate with the viewer." - Clay Enoch

Within this context, my emphasis is on composition. Be it sheep or children, I am looking for the right posture, the natural stance, the proper spacing, the perfect tension to make the work sculpturally compelling. I strive for conceptual consistency from style and patina through to the presentation on the base. Many of my new pieces are displayed on large black walnut blocks. This creates a specific space for the composition to breath and affords a more monumental presence to the work.
Glass is a new medium for me and I am really liking the added dimensionality and the element of luminosity. In a piece like When You Pass Through, there is a great contrast that the cool, rigid glass strikes against the warm, impressionistic bronze, helping to carry the extraordinary elements of the narrative.” -Clay Enoch
