Years after Wyland had become a successful artist, he began to cast his own marine life sculptures of whales and dolphins, everything from small maquettes to life-size dolphins and a series of bronze tables. His first bronze sculpture “Children of the Sea” was inspired by an early painting of the same title from 1993 and became an instant success with my collectors. Through his brilliant, life like bronze sculptures, Wyland rekindles your connection to life on our planet. Each piece is meticulously sculpted, then painstakingly cast – one at a time – in the time-honored tradition of the world’s greatest artists. The long process continues as unique patinas are applied for a finish that grows more lustrous and beautiful over time. The result is a riveting work of art destined to be handed down from generation to generation.
