The Desktop series of Civil War busts was begun in 2001 as a means of making sculpture available to a wide range of the public.

The search for a medium that would be durable, aesthetically pleasing and had the ability to hold fine detail led to consultations with Randy Groves' long-time casting company and, eventually, to the solution.

Each bust is sculpted in clay with painstaking attention to detail in likeness, uniform and insignia. The clay bust is then hardened and used to create a mold which is used in the casting of the final sculpture.

The medium used is a type of ground White Marble that is fused with a bonding agent to give the finished piece the appearance of finely chiselled Marble. The designation "Desktop" is derived from the size of the bust. At 5 inches in height by 3 inches in width the sculpture is large enough to be pleasing to the eye yet not interfere with work taking place at the desk.

Price for each figure is $25.
