In an unprecedented event for the award-winning producer of juried fine art and wine festivals in Arizona, Thunderbird Artists will host its inaugural "Sculpture & Wine Festival in Fountain Hills" on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, January 15, 16, & 17. The juried show will feature more than 60 acclaimed sculptors from around the globe, giving awestruck patrons a chance to view and purchase stunning, diverse pieces comprised of bronze, stone, copper, clay, wood, metal, glass, gourd, steel, found objects and mixed media. Gary Pottorff has been working with copper for 46 years. One such artist exhibiting in the show is Gary Pottoroff, a master copper craftsman, who has recieved critical acclaim for his Western sculptures, wall hangings, whimsical wind sculptures, fountains, and other unique pieces. Born in Hollywood, California, Pottorff has been working with copper for 46 years. As a young adult, he worked in the racing industry and the sold cars before discovering his passion for sculpting. He first began with steel, but was quickly drawn to copper. Pottorff's copper masterpieces have been displayed in prestigious museums and collections, including the Ronal Reagan Presidential Library. And while the Old West has inspired most of his work, his most elaborate sculpture was inspired by the release of the first Star Wars movie in 1977. His "Space Fantasy" sculpture is four feet wide, eight feel tall and 16 feet long, complete with ray guns that shoot water, robotic features and a full stereo system.
