ABBEY'S GIFT

Edition Size: 12
Material: Bronze

I was asked to create a sculpture in memory of Abbey to celebrate the joy she brought into people's lives through dance. She was a ballet dancer and was part of an important dance company in New York. Sunflowers were her favorite flower and she loved to frolic in their golden fields. I presented three concepts and her parents selected two of them for me to develop into finished bronzes—this piece and Looking Toward Heaven.
