For over four decades Scott Nelles [Nell-ess] has been producing fine sculpture and decorative items cast in bronze. From one of a kind commissioned work to cast metal toys, bells, candlesticks and whimsical coin banks his work displays a childlike playfulness, elegant design and superb control of his medium. Nelles has been inspired by two seemingly opposite paths, nature and industry. His little cast animals are a continuing favorite of many while his art Deco toy cars pay homage to early industrial design.
In his foundry in Northern Michigan he uses the timeless methods of sand casting and hand finishing to create objects of beauty strength and whimsy.
His work is displayed in galleries nationwide as well as on line and has been shipped to collectors in eighteen different countries.
