Heaven and Earth

James Clover was born in Iowa in 1938. An internationally known sculptor and consummate academician, he taught drawing and sculpture for 30 years. His work is almost exclusively steel or bronze constructions with various welding, paint, and burnishing treatments. The whimsical forms are often a riotous chaos of white geometric shapes that climb into the air. Several U.S. cities boast sculpture parks which host the work of both Clover and, like Alexander Calder, Clover's creations are no strangers to College campuses. In 1998, a major Clover installation was completed by Emory University in Atlanta.
