A chance trip to Asheville's River Arts District brought an art collector and interior designer / Pastor's wife into my studio in December 2015. After some wonderful conversation, their interest centered on the beautiful fireplace mantel displayed in the studio.
Today, January 27, 2016 I had the privilege of delivering and installing the piece in their beautiful new church building located in Knoxville, TN. As you can see from the pictures, this fireplace mantel sculpture is right at home among the stacked stone and timber mantel. I hope they enjoy it for years to come!
