Eisenhour Sculpture Studio
220 Curtiss Street
Port Hadlock, WA 98339
In 2014 we completed a significant remodel of David’s studio. Come see how David has made this studio a home for his creativity and completed works of art. Tour participants will see works of art in various stages of the lost wax casting process, some fabricated pieces, and a complete metal working shop. Sculptor David Eisenhour will explain the various techniques he uses and will have some works in progress.
If you are coming from Port Townsend going south on Irondale Road, take a left on Matheson (same street Port Hadlock Port Office is on), proceed two blocks, take a left on Curtiss. We are at 220 Curtiss, the second house on the right. Look for signs from Irondale Road.
I am at heart a naturalist and environmentalist. I love to explore the life of a place. I fill my studio with small bits of inspiration, which I keep in fishing tackle boxes. An entire microcosm to work form – tiny pieces of the natural world gathered from everywhere I go. I can bring an entire trip home with me and then when placed under the microscope another world is revealed – the repetitive building blocks of the endless forms of life on this planet.
David developed the concept and chose the 16 participating artists for Neo-Naturalist, a major show at the Museum of Northwest Art in the Spring of 2015. He also had a solo exhibition of his work at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art in June 2014. He is represented locally by the Simon Mace Gallery in Port Townsend and also by Smith and Vallee Gallery in Edison, WA.
Studio is open by appointment during the remainder of the year.
