Jim Eppler spends many hours outdoors, observing animals and birds. He captures on sketchbooks and film the remarkable dimensions of wildlife and their habitats. “My photos reveal their form and habits, but their gift to my soul is what inspires me to paint and sculpt.” Sculpted in wax and clay, Jim’s creations capture subtle gestures and movements that are cast in bronze using the lost wax method. With paint and patina, Jim expresses the distinctive markings unique to each species. These sculptural works are suitable for interior placement and as landscaping treatments.
