Rip's path has always been guided by one purpose: to revitalize the bond between man, animal and the land. In 1992, he discovered
the ideal medium for that purpose, the complex Lost Wax method of bronze sculpture, a labor-intensive process that yields improbable delicateness
from molten metal. Cast in sizes from miniature to monument, each infused with the spirit of the subject, Rip Caswell's remarkable pieces silently
reveal their captivating tale. His attentive skill as a craftsman is displayed in every work by capturing the excitement of life on the verge of
movement, causing each sculpture to be more than a moment suspended but a dramatic story unfolding. Through his sculptures, undeniable emotions are
transferred into clay and born into bronze. By gazing into the eyes of his subjects, their spirits are revealed and their stories preserved and
retold by countless generations who will serve as caretakers of the bronze throughout its long journey through time.
