For over three decades, Scott Nelles has been producing cast bronze sculpture. From toys to candlesticks, his work displays a childlike playfulness, elegant design and superb control of his medium.
In his foundry and studio located in northern Michigan, Nelles is inspired by the natural world and the creatures in it. His little bronze animals have been a favorite for many years. Inspiration is also derived from his childhood in the Detroit area. On visits to foundries and steel mills with his father, who was a manufacturer’s representative, he was fascinated by the industrial process and the objects it produced. The toys he creates depict automobiles, ships, boats, airplanes and robots, all intended to thrill boys and girls of all ages. Using the timeless methods of sand casting and hand finishing, he creates objects of beauty, strength and whimsy.
