His portfolio of bronzes available through the gallery

I am at a point in my life, my career where I feel reenergized. I’ve worked on a number of large commissioned pieces over the past four to five years and while that was great, I’m really into creating new, interesting pieces. Smaller, less expensive pieces that more people can own. Pieces I’d like to own!

A native of South Dakota, Edward Hlavka developed an early passion and natural ability for sculpture. As a teenager, he toured Italy and was influenced by the works of the Renaissance masters and later returned to study figurative sculpture in France.

Hlavka's more notable works include a monument representing the Oneida Indian Nation for the Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of the American Indian, in the Mall in Washington, DC as well as Helen Keller, commissioned for the State of Alabama and unveiled in the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C.


Mr. Hlavka is a member of the Allied Artists of America and a professional member of the National Sculpture Society.
