About Gerald J. Sandau
Self taught, Gerald has emerged with a natural talent to create original, one of a kind, sculptures of the unique and wonderous creatures that the Creator blessed us with. A lifetime of working with animals and nature, while farming and ranching, has endeared him to the beauty of wildlife in its natural habitat when uninterrupted by human intervention. Their grace and grandeur, their perks and quirks, often humorous, sometimes fearsome, always alert, moves him to capture one frame in their movement. He creates, from nature's stone, finely detailed, three-dimensional wildlife sculptures. Works in jade, chlorite, soapstone, alabaster and perypholite. He also feels a bond with the First Nations Forefathers of our great nations in their reverence with Nature and enjoys creating effigies of the proud historical Native figures. Our Creator bestowed upon every one of us the custodianship of this wondrous Planet and all its creatures.
