'Strength of the Maker right from its title... to the strength shown even in the toes, is a statement of how I view my very inner belief. Nature and all things natural have always been of the utmost importance to me all my life. Believing in, the Great Spirit, Buddha, Mohammed, the Mysterious One, is important. I feel they all exude the same message; a life of oneness, of love, of honesty and a source of emotional strength. Strength of the Maker is my visual version of how I see my Maker.' -DH

On our trip to Boerne, Texas we installed a sculpture at a client's home. This ideal placement just happened to work out beyond comprehension - we knew Denny Haskew's mother and child sculpture "Moulding Our Future" would look nice - but this exceeded everyone's expectations. The sandstone patina against the texas limestone, the flow of the composition against the archway. We think this is a perfect example of Living with Art.
Below are images from the installation. We hope you enjoy seeing sculptures in the air - we're happy to install your next fine art purchase.
