1: "The Bird Bath was created for an exhibition on Block Island, RI, USA. This sculpture is created from formed concrete, and hand formed copper sheet. It is kinetic and well engineered for outside harsh weather. sTanding almost 8 feet tall this sculpture represents a bird and it has a claw which has taken hold of the earth, or perhaps it has landed upon the earth. The Bird represents protection and strength. This piece collects water, but does not hold the water very long. The beaks, if you will, pivot in the wind for aerodynamic structural purposes. This sculpture is perfect for the garden or yard as it brings some height and has earth colors. $1,500 | © Karen J Wassmer 2011 Whispering Angels® Art Studio | Butterfly sculpture at the Downtown Stamford, CT Mall. This is a beautiful sculpture. $5000 | Please call for appointment to see art 860-316-5128 Middletown, CT....
2: The Dragonfly was created as a commission for the Downtown Stamford, CT Arts Council in 2009 and on exhibit throughout the summer. It is created from sheet copper, rolled and brazed. The eyes are hand formed brass. The Dragonfly is 9' long and 8' wide. The wings are spacious as to reflect the luminosity of real dragonfly wings and for aerodynamic purposes; as most large sculptures need to be sound in design when outside elements will play a part of its' survival. I have a natural and educated ability to design and build larger sculpture which will withstand all weather changes and situations. This Dragonfly has a centrifuge created from steel flat stock, which attaches the wings for easy transport. This beautiful dragonfly is designed to hang on the outside of a house, shed or barn and is very much a conversation piece. $3,000
3: These are smaller Dragonfly sculptures for inside. These are created from found glass jars, wire, screen, and various eyes. They range from 1x1' to 3x3'. The legs are copper or light steel. They are designed to hang from the wall or stand on a high spot. Very attractive addition to a home or office. Price ranges from $150-$300 | I was featured on HGTV in 2008 April on a show called "Thats Clever" creating these glass dragonflies. | ©Karen J Wassmer 2011
4: These are original "Whispering Angels®" wall sculptures I create using found objects, dishes, utensils, hand carved hard woods, vintage fabrics, vintage jewelry, and other components. I have been commissioned to create these as a memorabilia for clients using their objects; from a loved one who has passed, or as a theme for a certain room or business. I have sold these, and shipped them all over the world. And they were also featured in the same HGTV program as my dragonflies.

7: Public Art Sculpture created for Long Branch, NJ. "Balance" It is about balancing our eco-systems. Steel, wood, fiberglass 10'x9'wide $2,500 | I have a 4,000 sf barn in the rural portion of Durham, Haddam, and Middletown which is my studio and work shop. I built a separate forging shed for larger sculpture creations. I can weld, and forge steel. My Civil Engineering background has given me the experience to use concrete, steel, and other building materials to create structurally sound sculpture that holds its' integrity and beauty! I have been creating artwork for 11 years and I have traveled throughout New England, NYC, to Tennessee and Colorado in Fine arts and Crafts shows. I am now trying to keep closer to home and concentrate on evolving my larger sculpture and get my work into a museum.
8: This is a sign I created from a business card for a pizza restaurant in Middletown, CT. Forged and welded steel, plasma cut brass sheet, then hand formed, copper sheet metal, brazed. I have a completely furnished metal shop. I can form and build any shape you want. Of course as an artist Id prefer to create my own designs and have you buy them! But I am willing to work with you on a design that suits your needs...and then build it. | Design and Build | It all starts here!
