More Than 20 Years of Bronzes and Clays - By David Lemon
As found here in Galleries, and on my Gallery online
Covering bronzes from the early 90s to the present. This 22 minute video just shows some of what I've created over those years. Some are only seen in clay, because I never got the chance to photograph the original bronze before it was sent to the client. Some are shown in clay because they've never been cast into bronze yet. Most, only one or two have sold.. some are sold out.

This limited edition bronze, represents a Southern Cheyenne girl, dressed in a traditional skin dress.
The Cheyenne are one of the best known of the Plains tribes. The Cheyenne Nation formed into ten bands, spread across the Great Plains, from southern Colorado to the Black Hills in South Dakota. At the same time, they created a centralized structure through ritual ceremonies, such as the Sun Dance. When gathered, the bands leaders met in formal council. Alone among the Plains tribes, they waged war at the tribal level, first against their traditional enemy, the Crow, and later (1856*1879) against United States Army forces. In the mid-19th century, the bands began to split, with some bands choosing to remain near the Black Hills, while others chose to remain near the Platte Rivers of central Colorado.

The artist stepped out of his comfort zone on this one. For more than 20 years, Hal Slear and his brother Tim have been trying to talk David into creating a Hawaiian piece. Well they finally succeeded.
Hula is a dance form accompanied by chant (oli) or song (mele). It was developed in the Hawaiian Islands by the Polynesians who originally settled there. The hula dramatizes or portrays the words of the oli or mele in a visual dance form.Two categories of the dance being Hula 'Auana and Hula Kahiko. Ancient hula, as performed before Western encounters with Hawaii?i, is called kahiko. It is accompanied by chant and traditional instruments.
The following video shows the creation of Island Song from start to finished clay.
