  • Loading dock brings sculptor to YS

    Woodworker, sculptor and architectural designer Tom Hawley works on a sculptural bowl in his workspace at Millworks Business Center. Hawley’s work is on display at The Cannery Art and Design Center in Dayton and the Malton Gallery in Cincinnati.

    Massive logs lay outside the artist’s workspace, quietly waiting their turn to be carved, chiseled, shaped, shaved, sanded, planed and polished into a gallery of finely finished forms. The logs were recently recovered from a fallen Catalpa tree on the grounds of the Westcott House in Springfield, a unique example of the prairie-style architecture made famous by Frank Lloyd Wright.

  • Sculptor’s legacy set in stone, bronze, iron, etc.

    Sculptor Jon Hudson stands before his latest installation, Synchronicity X: I Am the Light of the World. The 16-foot tall, 27 ton, granite and mirror stainless steel sculpture was commissioned for the recently completed Center for Biblical and Theological Study on the campus of Cedarville University.

    An artist’s inspiration can come from anywhere — the angelic face of a sleeping child, a vibrant color from a neighbor’s garden, or perhaps the unique perspective of a somersaulting motorcyclist after connecting head-on with an oncoming car.

    “I was doing a wedding once,” explained photographer Mary Kay Clark, as she prepared for an upcoming exhibit, “and I noticed in the chrome around the headlamp of a vintage Triumph car was the reflection of the church where the couple just got married.
