Stefan Savides is an American sculptor of avian subjects whose work has found its way into public settings and private collections alike.

Savides is one of few artists who has followed his artistic passion his entire life, never working in the mainstream, yet flourishing with his self employed career in avian art. His early art endeavors consisted in painting and woodcarvings of birds, however he found financial balance in avian taxidermy. In short order he found himself as an international figure in the world of bird taxidermy, judging taxidermy shows world wide as well as conducting seminars and workshops nationally and internationally. Savides was also a regular contributor to the taxidermy trade magazines writing articles dealing with design and technical issues. These years of working with birds became the backbone of his knowledge as he stepped into the world of bronze sculpture. His understanding of anatomy, attitude and essence of birds is what gives his sculpture the element of life that transcends the mere mass of bronze metal he works in.

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.
