“I wanted it to be a particularly American sculpture, one that said something about a passing scene that will soon be gone forever. In a way it’s about the American dream—that vision of Eden where when things got bad one could always go west and with a lot of guts and a little money, start anew. But now the farm gives way to the village, the village to the town, the town to the city. The megalopolis lurks in the future. I just wanted to record the change, the persistence of those memories.”

“What intrigued me about the green sea turtle is that it can migrate over vast distances of open sea—from its feeding grounds to its native beach—with uncanny accuracy. Adding the sea scallop—long a symbol of marine travel—to the base was a way of conveying the feeling of this master mariner plying its age-old way against difficult odds.”

“During the summer months I spent doing the clay, this sow became the friendliest of the six pigs in the pen. I would jump the fence, set up my portable sculpting table, and give her a call. Of all the pigs, she was the only one that would come to me without being bribed by a fistful of corn. She would amble up to within a few feet of me, and then assume a sitting position—almost as if she had planned to sit for a portrait.”

“There’s something humbling about being alone with nature. The woman has gathered sea shells and, now, resting, is collecting her thoughts, those private moments when, surrounded by nature, we think of our own destinies.”

“Observing manatees in their underwater environment took me to Crystal River, Florida. I was nervous on my first dive because these underwater vegetarians can grow up to 15 feet and weigh nearly a ton. Suppressing my apprehension, I drew a deep breath and went beneath the surface, trying to think of manatees as sea cows in a watery pasture.”

“I felt a presence outside the vision of my face mask. Turning cautiously, I was startled, yet fascinated, to see three manatees, like little submarines, staring at me out of wrinkled, kind eyes. The largest approached me face to face mask. Disconcerted, I involuntarily gave her a gentle scratch under her chin, as I do my cat. Like a slowly rotating cement mixer, she rolled over and offered up her belly for a rub.”
