About the artist:
Sculpting provides a sense of freedom and creativity that calms and centers my soul. I find myself inspired by music, astronomy, landscapes, and many of the natural lines that we often do not realize are around us in our everyday lives.
I usually begin by sketching a design before then carving a clay maquette. At this point, I start visualizing the design emerging from different types and colors of stone. Once I decide which stone to use for a design, I try connecting with each piece as I walk the yard or quarry. As I began to sculpt, I allow the stone to speak to me as the design emerges. The curves and lines in my sculptures create a complimentary blend of balance and contrast that produces a sense of movement, wholeness and peacefulness.
In a fast-paced world of mass-produced items, I truly hope you connect and enjoy these one-of-a-kind sculptures and the individual beauty of each stone.
Scott Gentry is a stone and bronze sculptor currently based in the United States. At an early age, Scott discovered stone sculpting and soon traveled to Pietrasanta, Italy, to learn more about this ancient form of art. While in Italy, he was able to study in the same setting as many renowned sculptors had before him and experience La Dolce Vita.
As he learned about the varieties of stone available and how each would carve differently from the next, a passion for the art quickly ensued and has since led to a lifelong passion for creating sculpture. Scott's continuous search for knowledge has also taken him to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and Ventura, California. It was in San Miguel de Allende, Scott discovered the process of bronze wax casting and expanded into creating bronze sculptures. He returns to Pietrasanta as often as possible to work in the studio and gain inspiration from the Italian countryside, the marble laiden Apuan Alps and nearby Ligurian Sea.
Scott’s clientele has grown over the years to include celebrities in Los Angeles/Beverly Hills, California, as well as private collectors throughout the United States and Australia. He continues to create gorgeous works of art in stone and bronze and hopes to share his passion and creativity across the globe.
