“Sculpting is a spiritual experience for me, an intuitive process in which I lose all track of time in that momentary connection with the Divine. I believe art is meant to inspire, to heal and to free the imagination.”
The anatomical correctness of Slater’s sculptures requires a high visual sense. However Paula says, “I also work kinesthetically, my hands just seem to know what to do with this magical substance called clay.” The Artworks Foundry in Berkeley exclusively casts Slater’s sculpture. They are a premier bronze foundry, using high quality Silicon bronze in the ‘lost wax’ fine art method. Artworks is known for its museum quality finishing and Slater works with one of the top five patina artists in the United States. He simply creates the most exquisite patinas.
