Nate Dog

Nate is a very special infant with bacterial meningitis. We created two sculptures from his hands to be presented to special family members at a fundraising ceremony in the Fall of 2008. We began the process after Nate's 8pm bedtime, and he was extremely cooperative! Nate's story can be found on the Team Nate Dog MySpace page.

The gypsum preparation is carefully poured into the mold, avoiding air bubbles

 

 

 

 

 

This piece was cast with Nate's father holding one of his hands
