Michael Tatom showing at Harvest Gold Gallery

Harvest Gold Gallery is happy to present the wonderful work of Michael Tatom.  His captures the spirit of the animals.  The quick look from the grey fox.

Michael Tatom has been a sculptor for more than twenty years. He was born in Los Alamos, NM where he was surrounded by a family of artists and designers. 

In 1994 Michael started sculpting his series of bronze animals, each with their own magical shape and movement. Using simple and graceful lines he has become a successful sculptor.  The quiet fawn resting in the wood.  The lurking cougar stalking.

Michael Tatom quotes: "The main focus of my work is to translate into bronze the essence of the animal, to capture some movement or instinct and present it in a simple, stylized form. 

The last and one of my favorite parts of the process is the patina. There are so many variables when working with patina. The different colors and textures have a dramatic effect on the feel of the finished sculpture."

 Stop by when passing through beautiful Center Lovell, Maine, overlooking Kezar Lake and see them all.  New ones are expected soon!
