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.

      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

      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.
