Sculpture by Tom Sayre
This painted aluminum sculpture is the creation of Texas sculptor, Tom Sayre. With seamless welding, Mr. Sayre made this modest sized aluminum sculpture swell to monumental when seen in person.
Large Sayre sculptures are owned and displayed in University and museums, sculpture parks and private collections. This 1976 piece consists of a splayed pontoon cradle. and a voluminous square tank. It is rare for one of his sculptures to be painted in a color other than black or white.
We were fortunate to meet Mr. Sayre’s when he was breaking up his home in Texas and moving to Colorado. All the Sayre pieces we collected were purchased directly from the artist or through Andy Church.
Impressed into the base, “Sayre 2.17.76”
Tom Sayre received a BA from Missouri State University and MFA in sculpture from University of Oklahoma. Sayre has had shows throughout Texas and the United States.
