Jim Dodson, Jr.
Jim Dodson Jr. was named Best in Show Artisan at the 2008 Calgary Stampede Western Art Show.
Growing up on a farm in Oklahoma, Jim got his start as a sculptor at an early age by learning to weld and fix odd items around the farm. Following in the footsteps of his father, a bronze sculptor, he enrolled in foundry school to learn the art of bronze casting. After working in casting for a few years, he discovered his true passion was sculpting.
As a sculptor, he strives to create high quality, unique pieces by incorporating simple, geometric shapes and found objects; both natural and man made. The theme behind his work is “time,” where old world meets new world but with a modernistic approach.
Materials range from various mixed metals, including steel, bronze, copper and titanium. Even fossils and stones are incorporated to add an interesting element.
Jim still lives on a farm in Oklahoma, where he designs and produces his sculptures. His work is on display in both private and corporate collections. A public art piece can be seen at the Gene Autry Industrial Airport in Oklahoma where he created a steel entrance.
