Two Humans Walk into a Bar...

Stop me if you've heard this one....

Two humans walk into a bar. But they are not there to drink, they are there to sculpt. The first man sculpts an alien: frightening, bizarre, inscrutable. The second man is Tim Bruckner. His alien is laughing, joyous, and surprisingly familiar. The joke the alien laughs at could be the joke you told your co-workers that day, or it could be a joke appreciated only by the Gas-Geyser Lords of Alazar. Their understanding of humans is tenuous, at best, born of sketchily interpreted signals picked out across uncounted nebulae. So while you may not know why it is funny that one human would order a sin'taaar and the other would choose a dro-fuu, to an Alazaran that shit is hilarious.

Two Humans Walk into a Bar is a one-of-a-kind sculpt, standing 13.75" tall atop a gas-geyser base

An Elf for Your Shelf!

Have you been good this year? No? Excellent. Good is boring. Even Santa's elves get on the Naughty list every once in a while. We're not sure if this fellow is one of Santa's lot, or some sort of cookie-making elf, or just a freelance cobbler, but he clearly knows what you've been up to, although it's not clear if he entirely disapproves. Measuring 13.5 inches tall, "Something to Consider" is Tim Bruckner's latest one-of-a-kind creation, a detailed facial study of an impish elf, set atop a colorful plume of smoke. Is it pixie dust? Sleeping powder? Pipeweed? We have no idea. But it's certainly something to consider.

Something to Consider, 13.5", one-of-a-kind

Make a Joyful Noise!

Most portraits of Ludwig Van Beethoven show the composer with his trademark furrowed brow and scowl. But what must he have looked like when he completed a symphony? Or watched a child play with a puppy? Sculptor Tim Bruckner has rendered the composer in a moment of light-hearted whimsy, and painted up a one-of-a-kind bust in terra-cotta tones. Bust measures 11" atop a black pedestal.
