Sculptor Charles "Chuck" Oldham (voted one of 8 "Titans of Bronze" by Arizona Art Life Magazine, 12 years head wildlife sculptor and sculptor of Presidential and Head-of-State gifts for Cybis), was trained by master moldmakers with a lifetime of knowledge and practice in the production of ceramics and fine porcelain. Today, this know-how is all but lost in America, but continues in an unbroken tradition in China and other places where ceramic arts have always been highly esteemed.
