"Northern Lights Bench"
|Jim Vilona began his sculpting career after college in Breckenridge, Colorado in 1978.
His works have been created using natural stone materials and have gravitated to
more fluid metals, to include Bronze and steel sculpting.
"I love using a blend of mediums as my passion for change dictates."
"When I bend metal or pour a casting it gives me great pleasure to see what the fluid
metal will do with my ideas." "I love working with rich woods and bronze, and have
created beautiful functional designs with both elements blended into design."
Jim is currently using bronze to showcase natural mineral specimens and has found the
marriage of materials most exciting. "Using what I have learned in metalsmithing
together with my passion for natural minerals has given me inspiration to see where I
can take my work".
