In Harmony

We all know someone with a special talent or passionate hobby. The mailroom guy with a knack for woodworking or the systems analyst with a voice that would knock any American Idol contestant out of the running. But how often to you meet someone who builds masterful homes, churches and banks in addition to creating three-dimensional sculptures that fetch prices upwards of $38,000?

Selling his contracting business to pursue sculpting full time was not as easy as leaving a dull corporate job but Robert Holmes clearly made the right decision. Since devoting his energy to sculpture, Holmes has risen to international acclaim for his ability to capture beauty through the marriage of space, light, and form. Holmes draws on his architecture background to enhance his work by harmonizing structures with their environment, the people within the environment, and art, creating three dimensional spaces.

Despite the innovation of his designs, Holmes believes that a living space should be minimal, yet warm, and sculptural without being imposing. His pieces support his philosophy. The Oval Time Bronze cast bronze table ($26,000) epitomizes his harmonious, yet impacting works of art. Today, Holmes maintains a bronze-casting foundry in Sebastopol, California and comes up with more designs in his Sea Ranch home, which itself is an example of his architectural designs fused with his renowned fine art.
