Adorable Octopus! WOOD Earrings by Barry Stein and Family!
Self-taught, Oregon-based sculptor Barry Stein’s affinity for nature and its creatures is captured through his intricate bronze sculptures. Stein’s process begins with carving his designs in wood instead of the more traditional clay or wax. Though many artists choose clay and wax for their malleability, wood allows for more subtle details to show through the bronze. After the sculpture is cast, the stunning colors, most of which are found in nature, are applied through a careful patina process, which oxidizes the surface layer of the bronze. This painstaking attention to detail has made Stein one of the Pacific Northwest’s premier artists.
Stein spends hours in the wild researching wildlife and their natural surroundings. His love of nature shows clearly through his work, which is why his bronze sculptures are coveted by art collectors everywhere. Stein’s pieces are on display in prestigious collections worldwide, including The Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City; The New York Hilton Hotel; the New York Essex House; the Hyatt Regency; the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas; and the Pentagon.
