Smaller sculptures give me the opportunity to play with sculptural ideas. This is my sort of ‘free time’ in the studio. The title, Aye-Aye, is derived from the nautical term for confirmation of an order. Some sense of this seems implicit in the small bronze piece. Yes sir, Aye-Aye seems to say… at least to me. I have a long history on the ocean, having been a commercial fisherman as a young lad and having sailboats for most of my adult life, so nautical terms come easily to me.
