Ted Shillock is my cousin. We grew up in different parts of the world but, as adults, managed to get together in different parts of the U. S. When I was visiting him in Santa Fe he gave me this sculpture. In 1984 - 85 Ted studied in Carrera and has worked in marble ever since. He's inspired by the outdoors and many of his subject are animals from the American wilderness.
One of his marbles, called The Guardian, stands in front of the Oswego, OR, Public Library.
