Bill Secunda

Bill Secunda delights in creating anything from the most detailed of insects to the wildest of creatures. As a young boy, he spent many hours watching a neighbor weld and fabricate heavy equipment. The welding process intrigued him. During welding classes, Bill would practice his welding techniques by turning lifeless scrap metal into his first artistic creations. Today his sculptures range from realistic animals, insects, fantasy, to representations of Christ.

Beauty and Balance

Bill's creativity comes from the appreciation of the beauty that God gives each creature, large and small. Adding personality, balance, and a sense of movement to every piece makes each one stand out. Most everything Secunda sees, hears, or experiences provides inspiration.

Custom Designs

Working with a variety of clients, Bill delights in creating site-specific pieces. He learns each person's personality, likes, and dislikes through conversations that stimulate joint creativity. The combined efforts have created such things as an 18' fire-breathing monster sculpture emerging from a swamp in Alabama, a 20' preying mantis sculpture for the entrance sign at Happy Hollow Park in West Lafayette IN,  three bison sculptures for the entrance to Oklahoma Baptist University, and has recently completed a giant king Neptune sculpture for a waterway in Georgia, to name a few.

 Bill's life-like sculptures were installed at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, and over the years Bill has been invited to display at Disney's Epcot. He also created two bear sculptures for The Saginaw Children's Zoo in MI,  large insect sculptures for the St. Louis Zoo, a pride of lions for The Living Desert Zoo and gardens in CA.  Over a dozen different sculptures for Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham AL including a large 35' diameter spider 

that distracts drivers as they approach turn four.  Ripley's Museum has purchased several pieces for their US and international museums.  Bill has created all the trophies for the Red Bull  AMA US Rookies Cup.  A life size TinMan is installed at Fountain Hills Public Library in AZ,  and a fan favorite is his life size bear sculpture in downtown Aspen that has appeared in a couple of popular TV shows.
