Gerard works in clay, concrete, wood, metals and polymers. He has been creating wildlife sculpture for over 30 years and his work captures the movement and expression in the animals he produces. Gerard had a degree in anthropology and became interested in the relationships between humans and animals over our evolutionary past during his research for it.

Working from home using a gas fired kiln, Gerard faces many challenges including the fact that his kiln has been severely damaged 3 times in the last 4 years from flooding in Ithaca creek behind his home.
