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.
