    Daniel Cony

    This is the first friend I've ever "made!" Please meet Daniel Cony. In 1815 he donated land in Augusta, Maine where he established a school for women to obtain a higher education. This was later to become Cony High School. Now Daniel Cony, in life-size bronze, greets all students at the new Cony High Scholl thanks to the generosity of an appreciative descendant. 

    I took the artistic liberty to “remodel” the sober face of Daniel Cony (as captured in an antique etching done after the original oil painting by renowned artist Gilbert Stuart) with a friendlier expression. The copy of the Daniel Cony’s etchings showed him hairless. After the mold was made and sent to the foundry we discovered Stuart’s painting on the Internet displaying a full head of short white hair. A new head was made so this piece is available with or without hair. Either way this very distinguished and friendly gentleman can serve as a greeter welcoming people to a public institution such as a restaurant, library, museum, etc.

    This piece is the most challenging of any I have yet done. Once it started to literally take shape, I greatly enjoyed this creation.
