A new book

 Not yet available in stores!

You can now reserve the most recent book by John Lopez, discussing his sculptures,
and explaining his creative process.  Get an inside look at the journey of the artist
and his motivation to create something that is gaining attention world-wide.  Lots of pictures of the artist and the artwork, and interesting stories as to how this all came will not be disappointed in the quality of the book and its content.

 Sculptor John Lopez is a product of a place. His people’s ranches are scattered along the Grand River in northwestern South Dakota—not far from where Sitting Bull was born and died. Not far from where thousands of buffalo were killed during the westward expansion of settlers and gold miners. In the bone yards of Tyrannosaurus rex and grizzly bears. farmers and ranchers populated this chunk of reservation land, real cowboys have been roping and branding and sheering and haying and harvesting. John’s own forte lies in gentling colts and perfecting their bloodlines—and he started his celebration of them by sculpting in clay. Capturing every nuance, every muscle, in this land where business is still conducted over a cup of coffee and “neighboring” is a way of life.

Somehow that way of life—where times seems to have stood still—has seen the transition from horsepower to mechanized vehicles. The rusted carcasses of discarded equipment stand testament to generations of labor. And the man who knows bloodlines has picked through them, choosing the elements of the past—the actual implements that plowed the soil or cut the grain or dug the dinosaur—and created the curve of a jaw, the twitch of a tail, the power of a shoulder.

Join John on a tour of kitchens and scrap piles, barns and grain elevators, cemeteries and workshops—hosted by the people of the prairie. Meet Uncle Geno and brother-in-law Stuart, and scrap collectors from near and far. Listen carefully. There’s a story in the wind.

This post card will be mailed to you or the person that you wish to give this book for Christmas.

Sculpture Book

John really does live in a field of iron.  Iron from machines used to work crops.  Iron that homesteaders left behind when new equipment and technologies took over. " I live in a time where scrap iron is the fruit on the plains," John says.   "I appreciate the wonderful donations from family and friends.  i love that people want to help me and be a part of what I am doing"
