About the artist:
World-renowned sculptor, Timothy Schmalz, created four bronze and copper sculptures featuring some of Elbert Hubbard’s most well-known mottos. These sculptures transform the quotations into beautiful works of art. “These sculptures celebrate the Roycroft spirit, human industry, optimism and love of life, which are just as relevant today as one hundred years ago.”

Timothy Schmalz has been recognized locally for his “Homeless Jesus” sculpture which was installed at Cathedral Park next to St. Paul’s Cathedral in Buffalo, and for his works which reside across Canada, Ireland, in several churches in Rome, and at the Vatican. It is an honor to have his work on the historic Roycroft Campus.

Description

For over 25 years, Timothy has been sculpting large scale sculptures. He is a figurative artist with his pieces installed worldwide. Some of his most reputed pieces are installed in historical churches in Rome and at the Vatican. Timothy describes his most important work as visual translations of the Bible. Although most of his work is based upon a spiritual theme, he also creates large, complex public sculptures in bronze. Some of these include monuments that honour veterans and firefighters. Timothy strives to create epic  artwork that connects with viewers through design and details that not only touch the viewer on an emotional level, but also allow them to feel somewhat a ‘part’ of the piece.
