The Spirit of a Portrait

The tradition of portrait sculpture at times seems to be a dying art.  There are not many sculptors who care to take on the rigours of an art which requires both an academic skill and a strong intuitive sense about personality.  The very best portraiture is never merely a likeness, but captures a quality of spirit.  At Sculpted Portrait we are able to use photos  (the more the better of course)  and create a one of a kind likeness out of clay that is destined to become a family  heirloom.
