Hello and thank you for visiting my gallery. My name is Stephen Born and I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. For 27 years I made a living as a professional photographer shooting images for some of the nations largest and most well known accounts including the Wheaties cereal boxes.
The most interesting subjects for me was photographing people. I enjoyed photographing all the different colors, shapes,sizes, ages, and other variations that make up the human race. During that time as a professional photographer, I also enjoyed woodworking as a hobby. I love working with my hands and love the smell of a freshly cut piece of wood.
Now, I have combined my love of woodworking with my fascination of the human form into my business called BodyShapes Sculptural Creations™. Each sculpture is created with 13 layers of laminated, furniture grade Baltic Birch wood, faced with a black phenolic resin.
I have created these near life sized sculptures to not only be a beautiful addition to any home or business, but also very easy to install by the average person.
Your unique, signed, and dated sculpture, will be given to you in its own custom designed box complete with installation instructions, template, and sticky backed Velcro for mounting each piece. There are no holes to drill or nail into the wall. No hammers or drills required, just some tape and a sharp scissors or hobby knife. The velcro and sticky back surface is industrial grade and will stick to a matte or flat paint surface for a very long time. The sculptures in my home have been on my walls for well over a year. Semi gloss and gloss painted walls will not hold as well and may need an alternate form of attachment.
If you need to move to a new home or business, simply pull the pieces off the wall, put them in the custom designed box with protective foam and convenient carrying handle, and you're set to go!
I also do work on commission for that unique piece that you may have in mind for your home or business, and can work from your artwork or create one from scratch based on your desires.
Thank you once again for viewing my gallery. Please feel free to contact with me regarding any questions you may have.
