“This piece was directed by the models. The poses that the girls naturally assumed showed their relationship with their dad much better than I could have instructed them. Their father was the anchor — and the girls fluttered around him. I got a sense of how the girls saw him as strong and reassuring. They looked at him with a ‘my dad can do anything’ look. The dad was clearly having fun being with his daughters. I wanted to make this sculpture a two-way piece — the girls look to his strength and stability, and he looks to them as his greatest source of joy. I think the beauty of a good father/daughter relationship is in its duality. I hope the sentiment can be read from either perspective — father to daughters, or daughter to father.”

“The sentiment ‘By my side’ alludes to the shared background we have with our siblings; the unspoken support and consistent presence that we often take for granted when we are children, but grow to appreciate as we age. It could also imply that regardless of where our sibling is, he or she is truly always by our side."

You make the world a better placesomething special$27.00Description
“The gesture of something special is one of protection and caring for something precious... our children, our earth, our natural resources. I see it as a hopeful piece about possibilities… about every child, doing his or her share.
“The rock is etched with words and images. The puzzle pieces allude to how we are all inextricably linked together… they’re also symbols of children with autism. 'special' can mean many things—the special responsibility to care for our planet—and to nurture ALL our children to care for their future. 'Something' can be interpreted on many levels. The little sprout is an unknown. What’s it going to become? And the boy is a sprout too… what’s he going to become? He could represent hope for the future… This piece could be a symbol of newness and beginnings.
“For many years we’ve wanted to experiment with environmentally friendly packaging that wouldn’t increase breakage. We’re excited to try it with the packaging of something special. The inner shell is made from biodegradable paper pulp, so now both shell and box can be easily recycled”
Our bright, joyful gift!Our Gift$38.00Description
“I remember when we brought our first-born home, and walked into our house. I had an overwhelming sense of fulfillment — it seemed like our whole house was warm and full of light. When you bring a new baby home, all of a sudden you understand the excitement of being a family — this, now, is your family. It’s the start of something wonderful and new, and that, in and of itself, is a joyful gift.”
Every day, building on our loveYou and Me (lighter skin tone and hair color)$37.00Description
“This sculpture represents a couple who’s navigating life together – the joys, the challenges, and the daily decisions that come with being a family. I hope it speaks to an appreciation for the little things that make life interesting... and how love can renew itself over and over again. It’s the trust and support of each other through the day in, day out that strengthens love – and keeps us in it for the long haul.
“I also designed this piece to work with the children in The Roses in my Garden collection. I hope this helps you create a family grouping that reflects the personality of your own.”

My favorite time is time with you
"When my son was young, I remember how he craved physical playtime with his Dad—wrestling on the floor, big bear hugs, being silly, running, climbing, jumping; it didn't matter, just that they were together, laughing, spending time in the moment.
"Years later, I realized all of that physical interaction was a powerful way for dad and son to communicate—and how it formed a strong base of trust and love for a lifetime."
