#7 in the "Hands of the Artists" Collection completed
A new stone
sculpture completed "Venus-Abstracted"
A new piece
I have waited five years to start ... "The Elements".
Two things have stopped me.
First, I have seen many pieces over the years of the elements, almost every sculptor has done one or all of the elements, but I was looking for something unique. Second, I needed to hone my skills as a sculptor before starting this project. I have drawn and painted for over fifty years, but I have been sculpting for only the last six. In painting we talk about the more 'brush milage' you have, the better you get. I needed more 'clay milage' before I tackled this one. (More)

The Hands of the Artists collection is unique in that is a collaborative creation of two artists, each producing a one of a kind single piece of sculpture.” says Tieman. “I sculpt the figure of an artist at the moment of them creating, and cast that figure in bronze. Another artist chosen for the piece then creates an original second art piece which is the completed creation piece.
