    Nope. Sorry Chris, what you see is what you get. It's a one piece sculpture. I'd have to do a new sculpture. I do appreciate the suggestion.

        Finally decided where to display my pair - at the office. Sad to say but I'll see more of them there than I would at home. For now, anyhoo. They look great even if they are currently holding up some less-than-entertaining titles.

          Thanks for letting me know, Paul. I like to see/hear how people display my stuff. And, though I'm sorry we all have to spend more time in our offices than where we want to be, I'm glad you'll be able to enjoy them more by having them there.

          BTW, what's the "Daily Drucker" about?

            Peter Drucker was a big name in mgmt consulting. "Daily" is his book of insights into how to improve your (and your company's) performance at work. One insight per day... each one was a page or two... was a fun read the first time around. Now I don't really g.a.s.

              When I'd ask a friend of mine, who was near retirement, how he was doing he'd often reply "I've got a good case of the don't-give-a-shits." In the last year or so I've come to understand exactly what he meant.

                Unfortunately I still have to g.a.s. about work in general since I still have a kiddo in college.

                  g.a.s. Interesting saying, lol! A new definition of retirement might be "ran out of g.a.s." ?? lol

                      Fred pointed out to me that nonmembers who looked at my stuff would have no way to contact me if interested. So, here is an address for those folks to use: dpkain1@gmail.com

                      Thanks

                        Hey Dave,

                        Are these still available, specifically the grouse/woodcock in a pair? I'd be especially interested in them bronze cast if the price is anywhere near your estimate [of a few years ago].

                        What other sporting art bronzes do you have these days?

                        Thx!

                        Steve

                        As stated earlier, $25 ea. or $45/pair, + shipping. PM me with your address and I'll get a shipping cost for you. I sent a pair via USPS to someone in NY and it was approx. $7.50.

                        I may have to cast a couple more but it doesn't take long.

                        Just in case you're interested, I've fooled around a little with different patinas. (Actually, the one I'm going with as a standard has a darker background color than those shown in my original post. Nicer, IMO.) Here's pics of one I did in a verdigris, which I think turned out pretty cool. But it's not consistent (which makes it sorta fun) so, if you wanted to go with that patina, I would send you pictures before shipping them, to make sure you like 'em. If you like this one, it's available, but keep in mind the other of the pair could look significantly different.



                        Thanks for your interest, Jay.

                          Not sure how I ever missed this one. I would get in line for second dibs if they are available.

                            Oops. I missed these "new" posts. Sorry.

                            I have a number of these cold cast. And, after putting more thought into it, don't think I could have them cast in bronze because of the way I attach the tang. If I can figure out a way, I'll ask the foundry.

                            Steve, still have the woodcock, and now two dog pieces - a field setter ("Style") and a pointer ("Intensity"). Also just finished a grouse piece ("The King"). I'm not able to post photos but Fred posted the pointer. Maybe the setter, too. Can't recall. Check other threads in this forum. I have better photos now. PM me with your email and I can send them.
