Works in Bronze
PAGE 2 • RETURN TO PAGE 1

All of Ed's bronze birds are produced professionally by the Bronze Works, a foundry that is devoted solely to art work. 
They make molds of his carvings, produce the bronze birds and, under Ed's watchful eye color the birds using the patina process.
Ed's larger bronze birds are created in limited editions.


"COOPERS HAWK" 1/2 size

Approximate size: 13"h x 6"w

$2,400

In days past, the Cooper's was the most numerous of hawks, frequently referred to as the "chicken hawk" because of their ferocity in catching chickens from poultry farmers.  They have short wings and long tails for sudden spread, quick checking and rapid deceleration.  They maneuver with ease and safety in dense growth or a maze of branches that would make hunting dangerous for another kind of raptor.  The hawks have a slate colored back, light colored chest and heavily barred tail.


" NORTHWEST GREAT BLUE"

Approximate size: 14"h x 15"w

$3,000

The Great Blue Heron is one of the most popular of Northwest birds.  It has a wing span of 7 feet and is about 4 feet high as it stands in shallow water waiting as silently the grass reeds for its food to swim by.  I have tried to capture this pose in a bronze presentation.  The bronze is large enough to make an artistic statement in your home and yet small enough for you to move from one location to another as the mood strikes you.  The bird was carved from wood, a mold then made to create a wax replica and, using the "lost wax" method, finally the bronze.


"CURIOUS CHICKADEE" (Black Capped Chickadee)

Approximate size: 6"h x 3"w

$900

If you have ever seen a chickadee at your feeder or in the yard, then it has probably become a favorite of yours.  They are such a perky, active and distinctive little bird and they certainly thrive in the trees, orchards and thickets of the Northwest.  They are from the Titmouse family, having a jerky sort of flight, and are acrobatic generalists.  This bronze was inspired by watching how curious the chickadee's are at my home as they flit around the feeders and shrubs.


"COMMON LOON"

Approximate size: 6"h x 15"w

$3,050


Few sounds are more distinctive and haunting than the call of the loon.  A few summers ago, one spent several weeks near our home and sent its song far across the water.  It inspired me to do this carving.  A striking feature of the loon is the 2 white spots on many feathers.  The spots are on either side of the quill.  In addition, there is the "necklace" effect of white feathers on the loon's throat.  I have created these contrasting spots and feathers in gold so that the overall traditional bronze effect can be accomplished for the bird sculpture.


"COOPERS HAWK" full size

Approximate size: 24"h x 8"w

$3,000


In days past, the Cooper's was the most numerous of hawks, frequently referred to as the "chicken hawk" because of their ferocity in catching chickens from poultry farmers.  They have short wings and long tails for sudden spread, quick checking and rapid deceleration.  They maneuver with ease and safety in dense growth or a maze of branches that would make hunting dangerous for another kind of raptor.  The hawks have a slate colored back, light colored chest and heavily barred tail.


"THE WISE ONE" (Snowy Owl)

Approximate size: 13"h x 5"w

$2,400

Everyone seems to share some intimacy with owls.  Certainly you have heard their familiar sound, even if you have rarely seen one since they are active primarily at night.  They have a reputation for being wise, perhaps because of their posture and facial appearance.
