Gary Alsum's "Grandpa's Workbench" was placed at the entry of Deines Lumber in Loveland, Colorado in 1996.
The sculpture depicts the generational tie of a grandfather creating stilts with, and for, his grandkids. One child is already at play on their new toy, while the other watches attentively as the grandparent pieces the wood together. Plains, buckets of nails and other tools are scattered on and below the workbench.

JK Designs’ Principal, John Kinkade, founded the National Sculptors’ Guild in 1992 with a handful of sculptors who wished to find thoughtful public applications for their work. Representation has since grown to over 20 contracted sculptors and painters; plus an extended network of 200+ artists that our design team works with on a regular basis to meet each project's unique needs. click here for a list of our over 500 large-scale placements.
