“Dear Paula, It’s been nearly 14 years since the dedication of the memorial, you and your husband joined us on that beautiful day in August to unveil a beautiful bronze statue to pay a tribute to the men that lost their lives in that horrible explosion. I am so grateful for not only your skill and talent but for your true compassion in your craft.  While many other sculptors never replied to my inquiries, you not only replied but created an absolutely magnificent statue that to this day is as beautiful as it was at the unveiling.  You will always hold a special place in my heart as well as the hearts of many people.  Just wanted to let you know how special you and your work of art are to not only the families but to our entire community.  You truly are a blessing.”
Sincerely, Randy and Debra Comeau

Paula, Our dream to create a Veterans Mall in Ludington along the shore of Lake Michigan began with you. Our family searched for months to find a most worthy tribute to all veterans. A Google search produced an image of the “Ascent of Heroism” and sent goose bumps up my spine.

A year later our dream has become a reality with not one Paula Slater sculpture but two. Seeing your Ascent of Heroism in person will move one’s very soul, there is so much to see and every veteran and family member who looks at it will deeply connect. The centerpiece of the Mall is your larger than life bust of William Charette who’s very likeness has been so expertly captured. But upon looking into his eyes, his very spirit is in there too. He will now forever gaze towards the waters of Lake Michigan.

Paula you are not only a Modern Master, you are humble, unselfish, and extremely caring. Your time spent being interviewed by our newspaper and your evening at our Art Center was so appreciated, but the gift of your talent made our Veterans Mall so much more than our committee ever dreamed. You and Chris are always welcome, and we will leave the light on for you at the cabin. Forever Grateful,

Budde Reed  –  Client for the Ludington Veterans Mall Ludington, MI

Dear Paula, There are hardly the right words to convey to you our thoughts of thanks and gratitude for your fine work on the bust of our brother/uncle William Charette. Please know that we feel so honored and that his medal of honor legacy will live on through your wonderful work. In gratitude,

Tom and Patricia Ezdebski  –  Nephew of William Charette Ludington, MI

“You have sculpted a proud Persian Lioness whose spirit could not be broken,” as one Iranian gentleman wrote to me after seeing the bronze. Another wrote, “Incredible Paula! There is so much life, even in the photos, that I believe she could speak.” And another response, “It is so beautiful it is breathtaking, what a treasure for the Iranian people.”

One of the many emails Slater received about this second portrait of Neda.

“I would like to thank you in the name of all freedom seeking Iranians for your wonderful work of art. Both portraits of Neda are beautiful, but the second one frees her from the head cover, which removing it is one of the biggest wishes of the women in Iran. Thank you again and you have a special place in our hearts.”

M-B

“This is magnificent. I am really amazed with your magical art. No doubt that Parvin (Shorab’s mother) is proud of her son and will be very happy to hear about your work.

“There are no words to express the awesome nature of your work Paula !!!! Beautiful, capturing, inviting, dramatic, spellbinding, just draws you to stand there and behold.

Once a kindergarden teacher asked a student what he was drawing, and he replied “God”. The teacher said, “But no one knows what God looks like. He replied, they will when I finish this picture!!…..So, Paula, we now know what Jesus looks like! Thank you again.”

Dr. Tom Chambers  –  First Baptist Church of Orlando

“As you know, I tried to keep these portrait sculptures a secret, because I wanted them to be a surprise birthday gift for my wife, Jennifer. However, I ended up telling my wife and just showed her your photograph of the finished clay portraits. Jennifer said, “Don’t change a thing!” She was delighted and thought they looked exactly like herself and Mary Kate. Now she can’t wait to see the finished portrait bronzes!!”

“Orlando is ‘known’ as the City of the ‘Worlds’….Disney World…..Sea World….Universal Studio….Holy Land Experience…..and we off handedly refer to our church as ‘Baptist World’ as we are centered here near them and have frequent visits from world travelers passing thru ‘the other worlds’. So NOW we are able to present Jesus to ‘The Worlds’ in such a majestic visual that will just leave all who pass by spellbound….. ‘Thank you’ seems paltry for our true feelings. As we have said previously, your talent is unmatched ! We consider this whole event to have been a divine appointment.”
