Public Art Initiative: Conway Critters
Conway Critters is a public art initiative that allows upper level sculpture students and the City of Conway to work together to create 8 bronze public sculptures that will be permanetly displayed in downtown Conway. This project is being realized via ARTS 499 Conway Critters course. Students will gain an understanding of public sculpture in a commercial sense, budgeting for materials, and advanced moldmaking and casting techniques.

The hotworks facilities in the sculpture area began construction in the summer of 2014, and has continued into the spring semester of 2017. I, along with Logan Woodle, researched and chose machinery and tools, layouts, etc for the buildout of the facilities. Most recently, I acted as consultant, designer and fabricator for the Low Melt Kiln, which will be used in the creation of the Conway Critters initiative and the forthcoming Chanticleer statue
