Chris Sawyer grew up in San Francisco and was introduced to sculpture at an early age by his grandmother, an accomplished ceramicist. He graduated from the University of the Pacific and went on to study at the Academy of Art in SF. His love of design led him to manufacture and design furniture for 30 years, ultimately buying Metro Furniture Co. with three partners. He next moved to Carmel, CA and built custom homes. Now he has returned to his first passion and is sculpting elegant, sophisticated pieces from steel, stone, wood, bronze and resin. The influences of master sculptors such as Bufano, Wall, Calder and di Suvero are evident in this striking work.
