Mother Mine

Whether through the miracle of birth or the blessing of adoption or fostering, the arrival of a child is a mother's greatest joy. Using traditional sculpting techniques, Jay Rotberg creates a timeless homage to this special bond. The artist's emotive pieces are originally sculpted out of wax then cast in bronze and then recast using bonded resins. He finishes each sculpture with a traditional verdigris patina, a technique used to preserve sculptures since antiquity. Featuring figures in a deep embrace, this work of heart makes a powerful statement about the unconditional love a mother and her child share. Handmade in the artist's studio in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Beautiful piece

By

Comments about UncommonGoods A Mother's Touch:

It is a nice piece of artwork depicting a mother and child embracing. My children loved it and picked it out. It is taller than I imagined, but lovely and a great way for my children to show how much they care.

Mom was thrilled with this Mother's Day Gift

By 

from San Francisco, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods A Mother's Touch:

Mom, is not particularly sentimental when it comes to gifts given to her so I was on the fence about purchasing this as a Mother's Day gift.

She loves the piece and has even placed it on a pedestal.

A Touch that Touches

By 

from Ft. Myers, FL

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods A Mother's Touch:

This statue is a beautiful representation of all kinds of love. I sent
this to a friend who lost her mother. She put it on her mantle in the living room, and it reminds her of her mother all the time. I chose this gift in place of flowers, and she loved it.

        Comments about UncommonGoods A Mother's Touch:

        Statue arrived faster than anticipated and was much larger than I thought it would be. This is a Mother's Day gift (for 2015) so as of right now I have no given this to my mother, but I know her tastes and I know she will absolutely adore this. She might even cry a little. The statue feels sturdy and not flimsy or poorly made. I am very excited to give this to my mum.
