Homebuilders by Jeff Tritel

In the sculptor's words...

“Homebuilders” was originally commissioned by a gay couple who was looking for a sculpture that captured the spirit of their relationship without being “cheesy” or homoerotic.   After an eight year search without success the turned to me to capture that spirit in bronze. 

Anyone who has built a successful house knows the constant work that is required.  The name of the sculpture is “Homebuilders” as opposed to “Housebuilders.”  This is because it is more about relationships than it is about construction.  Each person has his job to do and contributes in his own unique way.  It is a continual dance of being constructive and supportive and at the same time staying out of your partner’s way. 

This sculpture is brought to the foundry as a complete wax pattern and is cast in a single pour.  The wax is assembled form eleven separate molds.  Like relationships, it’s not easy but worth the effort.
