Ry Champagne and his whales!
Hi my name is Ry Champagne. I am sixteen years old. I grew up in and around the ocean in Pacific Grove and Big Sur. Spending time swimming and surfing in teh water with marine animals reminds us that we live on a water planet. So the health of the ocean is something that is very important to me. These sculptures are made from recycled metal water tanks collected from around the penninsula by my mentor. Peace and Love and I hope you enjoy them.
Our son, Ry, has been apprenticing learning the art of welding with a teacher in the Santa Cruz mountains. He is making whales for sale to save up for a new mountain bike. They are $55 each and cost $10 to ship anywhere in the US. The purchase cost includes the shipping. They measure about 18 inches x 8 inches. They make a very interesting piece of artwork for outside fences and gates. They also look great hanging on the wall. All whales are an original work of art and may vary slightly.
