Wayne has created sculpture in wood, steel, ceramic and stone, but his medium of choice is cast bronze. With over twenty years of experience working in the field of fine art casting as a sculptor, foundry man, mold and pattern maker, and sculptural enlarger, Wayne has developed his knowledge of metal casting. Creating his own work and working with notable artists such as Stephen DeStaebler, Nathan Olivera, Robert Graham, Ron Garrigues, Bruce Wolfe and others.
Currently Wayne continues to work as a sculptor and teacher of visual art. He maintains a studio and foundry in Oakland CA. His work draws inspiration from nature in all its forms. The sense of unity, of simple movement and timelessness that one finds in nature are combined with the recurring themes of the vessel as an art form, the human figure, and landscape. The forms have been described as minimal, but he prefers to think of them as organic and essential.
