An upstairs room serves both as a sculpture gallery and a class or meeting room for up to fifteen people.  Finished sculptures provide immediate references for students regarding subject, pose, features, scale, proportion, and patina coloration and techniques.

Primary heat is a small cast iron woodstove, with kiln heat and electric heat backup.  The studio is on the east side of Waldron Ridge in a stand of old growth juniper trees and overlooking several horse and cattle ranches.  The ridge at 3400 foot elevation is home to deer, cotton tails and jackrabbits, coyotes, quail and great horned owls.
