Let's toast the 20th century composers and a number of other cultural heroes!

When you wanted to put your favorite composer on your piano, the only busts you could find were from Brahms' time and before. I decided that I would rectify the situation and leave a legacy of molds for all the great composers I've grown up with.
After doing the first 30 or so, I couldn't keep myself from adding my other heros....childrens' authors, academics, and famous philosophers. I am proposing my toast from the front porch of another one of my heroes -Oscar Hammerstein.  I spent many years admiring his work, as well as that of Ira Gershwin and Yip Harburg. Of course Hoagy Carmichael and Meredith Willson included the music with their genius.  I'll get to sculpting them right after the duo of Gilbert & Sullivan, I promise!

On my Facebook site (https://www.facebook.com/Trenton-Cultural-Castings) I show a video of how kids take to working with these busts, if you introduce people to them through a crafts program. This site doesn't yet support video content...so I have to direct you there.
