Joel Shapses

"During my 55-year career, many changes and growth have come to me. I am now more excited about new techniques and materials to create than I have since I started. I get my inspiration from many sources which include nature, spirituality and my emotions."

Spiral of Life - Alabaster 27 x 17 x 3 in.

“I was introduced to sculpture in college during my junior year in 1964. I enrolled in a course Sculpture for non-art majors and after two years of it, I was immediately infused with the art form.

I went on to Temple Dental School after graduating from CW Post College. Having developed my artist and sculptural skills, gave me an edge in my new profession which influenced my career. I created a dual career in dentistry and sculpture over the years.

I am an internationally collected sculptor and have won over 90 awards. My range of work spans many materials including stone, bronze, aluminum and fused glass. My studio and gallery is located at 6240 Shirly St Naples, Fl,34109.”
