Sculptor, Jeff Adams
Jeff’s career as a sculptor is currently well into its fourth decade, and has taken him from Illinois to Arizona and back again. In addition to being a full-time artist: Jeff founded, owns, and operates inBronze Foundry in Mt. Morris, IL where he casts all of his bronze sculptures. it is rare for a sculptor to have the ability and facilities to cast his own creations. For the last ten years, Jeff’s focus has been on the creation of life-size to monumental public sculptures. The bronze sculptures of Jeff Adams capture the intangible elements that surround and dwell within us. Wind and waves, fleeting emotions, or echoes of ancient myths are all melded together using gestures, composition, line and most importantly flow, to create the feeling and spirit of the sculpture. His aim is to breathe life in the clay figures he creates. It is only then that the process to transform these elusive feelings into the permanent solidity of bronze begins.
