I am very excited to announce that the ground for the Nevada Fallen Firefighters Memorial has broken ground!
This memorial will feature five life size firefighters in action. It will be an interactive piece, allowing visitors to walk in the scene, touch the firefighters, and pay their respects to the men and women who have lost their lives in the line of duty, as well as those who continue to serve today.
Sculpting this has been one of the most challenging pieces I have done due to the large amount of detail that is required in each firefighter. From the downed firefighter in the scene, to the Captain calling out commands, each fold in their bunker gear is meticulous. I know that my level of detail and craftsmanship not only makes for a beautiful sculpture, but shows respect for the men and women who have sacrificed everything to be in this profession.
This sculpture is slated to be installed September in Carson City, Nevada. Stay tuned for more updates!
