Living in Loveland, Colorado

Colorado sculptor George Walbye is a product of the Rocky Mountain West, having spent his entire life in the states of Wyoming and Colorado. Born in Rawlins, Wyoming, Walbye lived his early years in that high plains sagebrush country. He spent a number of boyhood summers working on ranches in the area once homesteaded by his grandfather at Whiskey Gap.

Following careers in education and sales, Walbye moved into the world of art as a sculptor, using the classical “lost wax” method, which transposes his original works from wax into bronze.

Now in his second decade as a fine artist, this self-taught sculptor focuses on both the legendary and contemporary west. Walbye has exhibited his bronzes in numerous shows and exhibitions, and his work is in private collections throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. He is an organizer and a top seller in the “Sculpture in the Park” annual show and sale in Loveland, Colorado.

Walbye’s sculpture includes vessels with strong design elements and innovative representations of wildlife. He also depicts Indians, cowboys, mountain men and women of the Rocky Mountains and high plains, places where he feels at home.

Workshop Materials List

1. Clay – Chavant Le Beau Touche. Get the regular clay, not HM (high melt).
2. Clay warming devices, a metal bucket with a clamp on heat lamp or 100 W bulb works great.
3. Tie wire.
4. Aluminum foil.
5. Scissors.
6. Favorite sculpture tools.
7. Plank of wood (pine) approximately 8″ x 8″ x 2″.
Bring as many planks as you wish…the wood is used as the base for your sculpture.
8. Plumber’s pipe, 1/2″ threaded: Bring several different lengths…up to 10″…not PVC pipe.
Plumber’s pipe T joint.
Plumber’s pipe couplers.
Plumber’s pipe flange.
9. Screws and screwdriver to secure the flange to wood…this may be done before you arrive. (Place flange in the center of plank)
10. Wire cutters
11. Needle nose pliers
12. Rubber mallet.
13. Spatula
14. Measuring devices such as rulers, measuring tape, dividers, and calipers.
15. Because we concentrate on BIRDS IN FLIGHT, live models in the classroom are more distracting than useful. I will demonstrate the technique of constructing a cantilevered bird armature that can be used for many different bird species and will show you how to assemble shapes to capture the “gist” of the specific bird.
16. Bird field guides such as Peterson, Stokes, Golden, or Sibley. Sibley’s Guide to Birds (not Sibley’s Guide to Bird Life and Behavior) is best if bringing only one field guide. This popular book can usually be purchased at any bookstore.
17. Bring your laptop to the class if possible.
18. Bring your sketchbook.
