Rob Burman Sculpture Studio Welcome to Rob world. Sun, 05 Aug 2012 16:16:17 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Merlin Sun, 05 Aug 2012 16:15:50 +0000 Merlin
























Standing just about 7′ tall, Merlin is a cold-cast bronze figure featuring  a pedestal surrounded by wildlife and topped by a robed magician “conjuring the elements”. A spring steel spiral, swaying gently in the breeze, holds aloft small leaves and rocks as well as a hummingbird and small lizard. Created in this configuration as a commission in the town of Merlin, Oregon, it is available as seen or in parts (Raccoon, Squirrels, Bear cub, Merlin himself or just the pedestal alone.) Although this piece is seen in cold cast bronze (Ground bronze suspended in resin), the materials can be altered to fit your needs or color schemes.

Approximately 7’x 3’x 3′. Cold Cast Bronze (as seen). Limited Edition.

The Goblin Sat, 04 Aug 2012 19:00:51 +0000 The Goblin









Stealthily creeping through the old woman’s garden, the Goblin conceals himself in his avian disguise in order to remain unseen. A sudden flash and he finds himself briskly grabbed and hurled, head-long, in to a large iron bird cage. The woman’s voice calls out, “Here you go pretty bird…”

Now he sits, uninterested in the seed that accumulates in his cage, waiting his opportunity to be set free. Don’t get too close or you could be the instrument of his freedom…


Limited Edition (4). Approximately 5’x 2 1/2’x 2 1/2′ with cage. Mixed Media.

The Flyer Sat, 04 Aug 2012 15:50:27 +0000 The Flyer










“Faith is no more supportive than a kite in the wind; yet it’s loftiness still keeps us a afloat.” Another of the characters in the Inkling Series is The Flyer. Initially designed as standing on the edge of a shelf, supported by his “kite”, he is also quite good hanging from his support cable along a flat wall supported by the Climber’s support “arm”.

Figure – Approximately 8″x 4″x 5″ with 6′ black coated steel cable. Bronze, Limited Edition. (Stainless Steel with clear coated steel cable also available by special order.)

The Climber Sat, 04 Aug 2012 15:33:27 +0000 The Climber










A very popular piece, the Climber is part of  the “Inkling Series” of sculptures that depict varying human actions in stripped down, minimalist ways. He is available facing both right and left and is held aloft by a coated steel cable attached to a supporting “arm” that attaches above him to the wall. He is fully adjustable on the cable so he can be slid high up near the top, his “climb” nearly complete, or down lower with his struggle still ahead of him.

Figure -Approximately 6″x 9″x 4″ on a 6′ coated steel cable. Bronze Limited Edition (Stainless Steel Castings with clear coated cable by special order)

Millie Mon, 30 Jul 2012 00:57:27 +0000 Millie









A “Twin” sister to Mildred, Millie was the rebel in the family. Right after she got out of High School she took off with her boyfriend on the back of his Harley motor bike. She fell off somewhere around Barstow, California, got a job at the local Diner and never left. In many ways, we’ve all been served by “Millie” at some point and we’ll never forget her.


Life Size (Approx. 5′, 7″) Mixed Media. Limited Edition.

Osceola Sun, 29 Jul 2012 23:42:21 +0000 Osceola










This Signature Series piece was designed to stand alone, or as a companion piece to Egbert. Created as the “Sweet old Grandma” type, her loving quality and pleasant demeanor attract everyone that sees her. Also available in a Victorian style “Florence Nightengale” design in black with white apron and trim.

Life Size (approx. 5′, 2″) Mixed Media. Limited Edition.


Egbert Sun, 29 Jul 2012 23:33:41 +0000 Egbert










Egbert is the sweet old man everyone falls for. The crisp detailing in his skin and his diminutive stature make him irresistable. Especially to his long time companion and “counterpart”, Osceola. Depending on where they are placed, they either look longingly toward each other or, reversed, they roll their eyes away from each other in mock despair.


Life Size (Approx. 5′, 2″ tall) Mixed Media. Limited Edition.

Mildred Sun, 29 Jul 2012 23:11:30 +0000 Mildred










An over achiever by nature, Mildred studied hard and went to the finest schools to gain her Master’s Degree only to find that she was over qualified for any position she interviewed for and subsequently would not get the job. She continues on in the profession that helped earn her way through school – as a Domestic Servant. Available with her hand wrapped around the handle of a feather duster or laid out flat to hold a tray, Mildred is very happy to let you know, “I’m not cleaning THAT up!”


Life size (Approx. 5′, 8″) Mixed Media. Limited Edition.

Sylvester Sun, 29 Jul 2012 15:45:50 +0000 Sylvester










As part of the cast of characters in my “Signature Series” line of sculptures, Sylvester is all attitude. He’s the tallest in the line (6′, 2″) and is somewhat customizable. We have him dressed as a Cigar Caddy/Butler, a Chef, Magician, a Dog Walker and a Security Guard. The last of which is a great addition to a clothing store, placed near the dressing rooms.

Life size, Limited Edition Mixed media.

Car Hop Sat, 28 Jul 2012 15:40:54 +0000 The Car Hop



















This Signature Series piece is a life sized sculpture with a hand made uniform and custom accessories (Including the serving tray, real vintage roller skates and assorted food items.) Hair, eye and fabric colors can be adjusted to your order.
