Display: Sculptor Charles Scott Goss

Charles Scott Goss, a Colorado native is a self-taught sculptor. His first encounter with appreciation of sculpting was while visiting Taos, New Mexico at a museum exhibit. He was inspired by the art and grew an interest in the techniques of sculpting. Scott worked in a casting foundry business for over 25 years and while there created his first piece, “Weather Watcher.” He was able to work with various artists who shared sculpting styles, techniques, and critiques which led to create his collection primarily in the West of the United States and in Europe.
