Traditional marble sculpture was/is heavy, heavy, hea-vy indeed. How heavy? 150 lbs per cubic foot, that’s how heavy. Consider then just how all of this dead weight soon builds to a point whereby even your modest miniature polar bear type sculpture proves practically unmovable – or at the very least a time consuming / expensive / potentially dangerous (think back pain), and ultimately frustrating endeavor.
My revolutionary new Curvilinear Marble Sculpture however is ‘Light, Portable, and Carved for Full Immersion in the Real World‘. Pick it up, move it around, place it here – or there. At last, marble sculpture is freed to take its place at the big table. Oppressive dead weight is history. The only way to fully appreciate the unique qualities of these user-friendly attributes is to see it, feel and touch it for yourself.
Plan YOUR trip to the KMJ TODAY !
Fortunately The KMJ could not be easier, nor more convenient, to find. Located just yards from Highway 82, and served by free “pit-stop parking”, the newest sculpture gallery in the great state of Colorado sits two doors down from FED EX “at the ABC”: 111 AABC, Suite D, Aspen, Colorado 81611.
Not everything I carve however conforms to the revolutionary Curvilinear principles on which I have developed my signature ‘direct method reductionist sculpture.

Top o’ th’ World, my heaviest carving to date, outright defies my prime Curvilinear principle, i.e. to remove as much unnecessary material as possible. The problem being that, in order to capture such grandeur and magnificence, I thought it quite necessary to let the sheer bulk of this piece relay my testament to the Colorado Rocky Mountain Elk Range. Close inspection will soon reveal a complex mountainscape, bejeweled with glittering minerals, an old abandoned mine or two, two divergent peaks and several treacherous snow ledges; not to mention two or three truly epic ski runs.
Thinly carved, curved, marble requires nerves of steel to sculpt. One mistake, and the game is over.
Hand Carved Marble Bowls have become something of a specialty for me, and perhaps best exhibit the ease of portability they bring to the world of fine art marble sculpture. Practical, dramatic, whimsical as they are eye-catching, these deftly carved vessels are simplicity itself to move from one place to another, allowing for the piece to be enjoyed practically anywhere; in the home, on the patio, at the office, or anywhere the bowl is positioned.
Marble Masks are fast developing as another ‘specialty’, as will be explored in future Marble Sculpture Collections.
Not all of the sculpture currently on display at The KMJ is comprised of marble however. Several pieces, placed here and there – just so – serve to contrast the astonishing milky-whiteness presented by the Colorado Yule Marble Sculpture.
Bas relief carving has long appealed to me. I love the simplicity of the medium. I also love the way these shallow cut sculptures manage to evoke the unfathomably ancient origins of my art.
