Sports Figure Casting Sculptures
Ken Norton heavyweight boxing champion won the title in 1971. I flew to San Diago California to work with him and his manager to create a series of fists that knocked out many including Mohamed Ali. A bubbly personality and a giant of a man.
Ken passed away in 2013.
Limited additions of his fist are available for sale and for fundraisers.
Jake LaMotta middleweight boxing champion who inspired Martin Scorsese’s film Raging Bull and fought Sugar Ray Robinson six times.
He was my model for a "bust" created for his 70th birthday.
An incredibly interesting man with many stories of his career and always a joke to tell. The bust is not a cast, but one of my sculptures that he kept. Jake passed away in 2017.
One of the first boxers I worked with. I proceeded to cast his fists for postarity. Limited editions are available for sale and for fundraisers.

George Chuvalo heavyweight boxing champion from 1956 to 1973. His biggest fight was Muhammad Ali in 1966.
I met George in Toronto on the recommendation of Jake LaMotta to cast his face and fists. The bronze bust was cast in my method of free-form bronze and the original sold.

Walter Ostanek musician, known as "Canada's Polka King". Three-time Grammy Award winner who continues to play with his band throughout North America.
I had the honor of creating a bust of him in
St. Catharines Ontario, and completed the piece as I would any sculpture. Hair and clothes were added and the sculpture placed on a granite base. A bronze patina was applied. The St. Catharine Standard covered the application of my method as well as the presentation at an awards night.
