Scott Nelles is an artist who has worked in cast bronze for over three decades. He designs and creates everything from decorative art to toys and his work displays a childlike playfulness, elegant design, and superb control of his medium using the timeless methods of sand casting and hand finishing his work. His foundry and studio are in northern Michigan. Scott pulls his inspired from the natural world and its creatures. His inspiration is also derived from his childhood in Detroit and his automotive, ship, boat, and airplane sculptures combine beauty, strength, and a little or a lot of whimsy. His work has been exhibited worldwide and I’m proud to say I have one of his pieces on display in my home, his Land Speed Racer sculpture.
