Maquettes are small models intended for working out sculpture related ideas. Sometimes they become models for actual sculptures, but more often than not they get set aside, except for the one that seems worth the time and effort to carry it to a full scale rendering. The maquette pictured above, which I called "Smiling Flower," later became the model for a stone carving I called "Study in Negative Space," as an example. Featured on this page are a collection of maquettes that I created in silver during a period from 1992-1995 while taking classes in Jewelry/Small Scale Metals from Lynda Watson-Abbot at Cabrillo College. I did make molds of most of them, so if you are interested in acquiring any of them, let me know through an email and we can work something out. Most of them are only about a couple of inches long at the most. Enjoy.
