dancing, fluid forms in bronze.... his work embraces human
potential. Sculptor Andrew DeVries creates with the fire
of his vision, the fire of his furnace and the fire of his
art began as he sketched in the ballet studio, observing
every nuance of movement. He related to the dancers and
the strength of their physical and mental will.
sculptures start as a vision -- a completed work in his
minds eye. This leads to a quick sketch on paper and
it may be several years before the work will begin. Unlike
most sculptors he is totally involved in the bronze process
as each work is brought to life by the heat of the furnace.
burgeoning success of DeVries sculptures keeps his
studios bustling. In addition to creating new works each
year, he undertakes a few select private commissions. Seeing
the work of this artist and his creative environment is
a special experience for those traveling in the Berkshires.
