"Orth's art is amazing, overwhelming . . . the primal vs the ethereal . . . rock and roll, the blues, arias."
 - author James A. Mangum,

The haunting beauty of David Orth's art expresses the complexity of our lives - its great gifts and great sorrows.  Even as a career sculptor, David has always honored special requests for cremation urns, giving them the same care & attention as to any of his other art projects.    Ten years ago, an artist friend urged him to gather these little-known projects into one place & make them available to a broader public.  He adds new designs regularly.


David’s woodworking, metalworking, & ceramics studio is nestled in the rural hill country just northwest of Chicago.  His specialties are sculpture, furniture, & ceremonial objects.  Please visit his main website, OrthSculpture.com, for more information.

David is a regular guy.  Don't hesitate to contact him with your questions or ideas.
