William Wessel has been creating one-of-a-kind sculptures for over 30 years. His career began with a sculpture course at Pitts;burgh's Carnegie Mellon University followed by a four-year internship with noted sculptor Joseph Fitzpatrick. William's extensive portfolio includes a wide range of subject matter and size, although his focus through the years has been on animal forms such as insects, birds and fish. Depending on his mood, William treats his subjects with exacting detail or comical whimsy. Many of his more "unworldly pieces are inspired by mythology , folklore and witchcraft. William's work has been featured in exhibitions through out the country and many of his heroic-sized pieces grace estates in Pennsylvania, New York and New Enghland.
