Wood: Bass - Height: 16" Width: 10" Depth: 12" - Artist: Gerald Copeland  *Note From The Artist: This carving is of my Grandpa Copeland. He died when I was a young boy, so I have very few memories of him. One thing I do remember was of him sitting on a stone wheel sharpener putting an edge on a corn knife. This carving was in my thoughts for years until 2006 when I brought it out and into clay and then wood. I used two pictures of his head, and my dad posed on a sharpener for the body. Artist: Gerald Copeland, Wood Sculptor, has 30 years of experience with portraiture in wood. With the perspective of a photographer, and the journal of an historian, Gerald chronicles the details and nuances that make a life story. However, it is his God-given talent to transfer and reconstruct the subtlety of humanity in clay, wood and bronze that necessitates that second look. As perception follows the whim of the individual, you may first see the extraordinary details, but look again and you will identify with the familiarity of personality you recall in your favorite photo of mom or dad, or the intensity of emption in that stirring scene on the cover of Life Magazine.
