“Bronze is one of the oldest materials worked extensively by man, yet it has retained its mystery throughout the ages.” –Jay Lloyd
Bronze holds the same allure for him as it did for all those who have worked it for centuries.
“I like my work to have simple, clean lines, and I take pride in the hand craft nature of what I do. The process is as important to me as the final product. Everything I make is individually cast and finished by hand to capture the warmth and beauty of bronze for everyone to enjoy.”
