This blog will keep you updated on the activities of sculptor Tuck Langland – his sculptures, lectures, talks, and writings.  It will also include his thoughts about art and sculpture as often as he manages to write them down.

After fifty years as a professional sculptor, educator and writer, look here to see what Tuck Langland is doing, learn why he does it, and discover what creative activities consume and inspire a mature artist in his senior years.

    How might a budding portrait sculptor find your summer workshop times and places?

    Bill, thank you for inquiring about Tuck’s workshops. Are you a student at IU Bloomington? And are you aware that Tuck created the Herman B Wells sculpture on campus? You may also know of him from his two textbooks, From Clay to Bronze and Practical Sculpture. Both are now out of print, so we need to have them reprinted privately. That project is still on my to-do list.

    Tuck is retired from teaching at IU South Bend, so now he only teaches occasional workshops, usually at Fire Arts, a not-for-profit community studio in downtown South Bend. See http://www.fireartsinc.com. Please visit their website and sign up to receive their monthly notices, which will include all the classes they are offering, including Tuck’s. He will not be teaching again until fall. This summer he has commissions to finish and a trip to take.

    Good luck with your portrait career, and keep in touch.

    Just read about the “typo” on your Ernie Pyle sculpture. I’ve read a great many of Ernie’s articles, and I’m a big fan. I really think he would have gotten great enjoyment out of the situation! And I love the sculpture. Amazing and beautiful work!
