Artist’s Statement
Todji at work
Todji’s bronze and stainless steel sculptures are created from inspiration, discipline, and travels in North and South America that ultimately lead to the journey within, to discover what it means to serve the higher purpose through art by making the world a more beautiful place for everyone.
I strive to serve the higher purpose by creating public art that celebrates all peoples, and our commonalities with each other and nature.  My site specific public art sculptures acknowledge all people’s histories, and welcomes the participation of all good peoples in our common dream of  happiness, healing, and prosperity together.
Todji Kurtzman Sculpture LLC offers my 30 years of professional sculpture experience, and my father Ken’s 55 years of licensed architecture experience as principle of his own firm Kenneth Kurtzman Architects and Planners LLC.
I encourage audiences to embrace their own experience and interpretation of my sculpture.  I have learned the most about my own work by what audiences have shared with me about their own experience. 
I produce bronze and stainless steel public art sculpture for cities, developers and private collectors on a commission basis in all sizes, large or small.  I collaborate with stakeholders to fulfill project objectives, and we aim to inspire countless generations with timeless monumental sculptures that have a potential 4000 year longevity, delivered on time, on budget.
Our existing bronze sculpture designs are available, and I can customize them to make them entirely unique as well.  I also create one of a kind site specific designs on a commission basis for private collectors and well as corporate and civic entities.
The site specific conceptual designs that I develop for public sculpture monuments are rooted in the research I conduct into local history, can include community participation in the present, and I draw on universal wisdom to serve the future.
I use traditional hand sculpting techniques combined with state of the art 3D sculpting, 3D drafting, and 3D printing for a smooth digital interface with other design professionals.
I have produced the creative concepts, sculpture, drafting, construction documents, fabrication, engineering, installation, community participation, and all other aspects of the practice for eighteen bronze monuments since 2006.
I work in the mediums of bronze, stainless steel and consciousness, my sculpting style is iconic and highly recognizable, and my creative approach is collaborative, containing the key ingredients to activate your space.
I invite you to cultivate your own winged heart, whether it be a work of inspired art, inspired business, inspired teaching, inspired administration; whatever it is that inspires you, that through our good work, we make the world a better place for everyone.
Thank you for your interest in my work!
Love and health to you and all,
Todji
