Barre Sculpture Studios
Things to Do in Barre
Since 1985 Barre Sculpture Studios has been chiseling figurines from stone and wood for organizations, municipalities and individuals.
Owner Jerry Williams, a local talented and celebrated sculpture, creates lifelike three dimensional art.
"What we strive to do is to animate the granite, to breathe some life into it. Building a sculpture from the inside out is not a matter of technique. Animation in representational sculpture is the intangible quality that speaks to the viewer, and is the one aspect that can't be adequately taught or described." writes Jerry Williams of his work.
Ceres Atop the Montpelier State Capitol
The State Capitol dome was topped with one of Jerry Williams designs, a sculpture of Ceres, the Goddess of Agriculture. A duplicate in scale of the 14 foot statue is viewable at the sculpture studio in downtown Barre.
Both Jerry Williams and Chris Miller received the Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts for the work this past November 2018.
New Granite for Montpelier Transit
If you're wondering what's in the pike, Barre Sculpture Studios is now creating new seating for the Green Mountain Transit Authority to be available for use by bus travelers at the State Capitol.
If you have a project or memorial and are interested in sculpture design please feel free to contact Barre Sculpture Studios for more information.
