Christopher J. White

Movement, rare woods and stone, exquisite grain patterns, fluid forms, are words used to describe the signature style of J. Christopher White.

White studied Wildlife Management at Texas Tech University and anatomy at the National Institute of Fine Arts, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuanto, Mexico.

Hunting specific shapes of seasoned hardwoods in the canyon lands of his native West Texas provides the opportunity to create exceptionally unique moving fluid sculptures. His sculptures are found in private and public collections worldwide.

Known for many years as a master of movement, White's creation of Bronzewood Melds and Bronzestone Melds in 2002 brought him a new distinction, being the pioneer of a new sculpting medium. The seamless union between two sculpting media – wood and bronze or stone and bronze – has, in effect, created a third medium – the “meld.” The warmth, beauty, and unique forms of the wood flow into the bronze with its strength and detail to combine the best of both media into a truly one-of-a-kind sculpture.
