He began sculpting his own line of miniature bronze statues. dpkministat.com Summer of 2002 he taught a class in clay sculpture at the Albuquerque Academy. There were twenty-four students ranging in ages from eight to sixty-nine. He continue to make some models on a freelance basis. But he intend to spend more time and energy creating and marketing my own statues, and begin teaching sculpture on a regular basis in my studio. He am beginning with “From Clay to Bronze”. Eventually he hope to add wood carving and perhaps stone carving.
