North Carolina artist Roger Martin has been creating wildlife sculptures for over 35 years. The majority of his work is sculpted in clay and then cast in bronze, using the lost-wax casting technique. This bear sculpture, titled Close Encounter, is part of a limited edition of 10.
"My goal is to capture the essence or personality of the subject, not just an accurate anatomical replica of the species. I have spent much of my life studying animals, the more an artist knows their subject the easier it is to push the envelope to achieve a truly expressive piece." ~ Roger Martin
