Burl Jones

West Virginia, it's rich traditions and culture, nurtured an artistic sensibility in Burl Jones that would build into one of the country's most respected careers in bronze sculpture. 

After 25 years in dentistry, Burl shifted gears several years ago to focus entirely on his sculpture. Clay and wax are his mediums now, and prove a way of expressing his love for those interests in nature and culture dominated his life. Wildlife, mountain men, Native Americans, fishermen, and hunters have all come to have a life of their own under his skilled hands.
