About the artist
William Wessel has been creating one-of-a-kind sculptures
for over twenty years. His career began with a sculpture course at Pittsburgh’s
Carnegie Mellon University followed by a four-year internship with noted
sculptor Joseph Fitzpatrick. William’s extensive portfolio includes
a wide range of subject matter and size, although his focus through the
years has been on animal forms such as insects, birds and fish.
Depending on his mood, William treats his subjects with exacting detail
or comical whimsy. Many of his more “unwordly” pieces are
inspired by mythology, folklore and witchcraft. William’s work has
been featured in exhibitions throughout the country and many of his heroic-sized
pieces grace estates in Pennsylvania, New York and New England.
