WELCOME TO WILEY JENKINS SCULPTURE

Bronze and Stone Sculpture

 

MY STORY

Wiley’s introduction to bronze sculpting came out due to sheer appreciation for the form. As someone who enjoys learning new things, and learning through experience, in the fall of 2014 he decided to investigate how bronze sculpting was executed. All initial instruction came from two books (Olivier Duhamel’s Bronze Casting Manual and Tuck Langland’s From Clay to Bronze: A Studio Guide to Figurative Sculpture), and he was able to cast his first two pieces in December 2014. Since then, his home foundry and workshop have taken over ½ of the family garage, leaving his car to the mercy of the elements. He has also been grateful to receive critical guidance and critique from the director of the SAA Collective, and continues to push the limits of his skills and abilities.

A video of Wiley describing his work and demonstrating the pouring of a bronze sculpture may be found on YouTube under Jenkins' Artist Interview (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZd6lN3uTtU).

Bronze Sculpture

Unless otherwise specified, each bronze is a unique, one-of-a-kind work with no copies or molds made. Scroll through the gallery above to see much of my work.

If something on the website you like is no longer available, contact me regarding making another version.

I am also available for commissioned work. Please contact me to discuss what you have in mind.

Stone Sculpture

In 2021 I am beginning to branch out into stone sculpture. Largely alabaster, travertine, onyx, and marble.

The goal of my work is not technical perfection. A machine can do that.


I seek to create objects that elicit

an emotional response.

NOTES ABOUT PICTURES, MEASUREMENTS, PRICES, AND SHIPPING

Pictures   I do my best to have professional pictures taken of each piece offered here. However, some pieces have more modest pictures posted (due to COVID, newly finished, lack of time, etc.). If there is a piece for which you'd like more views please contact me.

Measurements   All measurements are in inches and are height x width x depth.

Prices   The prices listed here do not include any shipping and handling. These are quite dependent upon piece size, and especially weight. If interested in purchasing a piece, please contact me and I can provide the cost of shipping.

Shipping   Unless specified by the purchaser, I ship all pieces by USPS and the most economical rate available. I will also insure each piece for the full purchase price.
