"Dolphin Dance"

Alabastar on Cedar


For three decades Bruce Turnbull has lived and worked just a few miles from the rural village of Kahakuloa on Mauiís rugged northwestern coast. It is the perfect setting for this master sculptor who takes his cues from nature all things peaceful. Of his work with wood, he says. "The design is already there. I simply bring it to life by taking away what hides it." Because of its strength, Turnbull says, "Bronze allows me a greater range of interpretation. With bronze I can be more innovative. Bronze has a timeless quality which only improves with age".
