Award-winning sculptors, Patz Fowle and Mike Fowle share an exhilarating life together that is fully engaged in the arts with works in public and private collections and permanent museum collections. Exhibiting works at Maddison Square Gardens in New York, to Brookgreen Gardens, this collaborative couple utilizes innovative processes and techniques, working in everything from: natural clay from the earth to post-consumer discarded materials to ¼ inch structural steel plate. Their most notable large-scale, public art sculptures to date are: Big Bleu Birdnanna 25-foot tall, kinetic, metal, located in the heart of the Cultural Arts District in Downtown Florence, and the kinetic, metal sculpture, Upward and Onward designed to honor the life and achievements of NASA astronaut and American Physicist, Ronald E. McNair located at the Dr. Ronald E. McNair Life History Center in Downtown Lake City.
