Creating a military sculpture is a huge honor and a massive responsibility. How do you sculpt honor and dignity and sacrifice? I have spent my career learning. I know that long after my work is finished, and no one is there to explain, the meaning of this monument must be clear and endure. So now, when I’m alone in my studio shaping the clay, I feel the weight of the moment. The families, the faithful, and the fallen are looking over my shoulder … whispering … making sure I tell the story well.

Creating a military sculpture is a huge honor and a massive responsibility because monuments are a reflection of who we value and what we value. I learned years ago with my first veteran’s sculpture that the work and detail must be correct. But more important than simply creating an accurate image, I must tell the story well; take cold impersonal bronze and shape a story that connects with the heart of everyone who will stand before it.
