Welcome to Jim Lewk Sculptor

Here you can browse photos of his sculptures, which are labeled numerically for convenience. All sculptures are hand-made and many can be customized in width and height. These sculptures are made of copper, welded with patina, and polychrome finish. The base is fossil coral from Key Largo formed at the beginning of the Ice Age 125, 000 years ago. The beauty of this ancient stone is its fossil imperfections. The balloons are hand-blown glass.
