The human sculpture of of husband and wife, Mike Sherrer-Triny Cline,
at first, appears to be broken, as if an artifact of ancient Greece or Rome. The artists do this purposefully to eliminate the distraction of certain areas of the body, to emphasize other areas, and to give their sculpture a timeless, mysterious quality. Casting their work in their own foundry, Sherrer and Cline are completely involved in every step of the sculpture process.
Native Georgians, Triny Cline and her husband, Mike Sherrer are nationally recognized sculptors. Though originally from widely diverse artistic backgrounds, (Cline was a photographer and realistic pencil drawer, and Sherrer was an abstract stonecarver and computer programming major), they have collaborated since l986, when they met at the University of Georgia. Married in l991, they have since lived outside Canton, Georgia, where they built the Byrd Mountain Foundry. Their business is named after the nearby pre-civil war plantation their “mountain” was named for. The land has been in the Cline family since that time.
