Howland is a master at capturing the spirit and likeness of his subjects.
The process begins with a live sitting during which time Howland takes many reference images and detailed measurements of the subject.
Following the photo sitting, a bust is sculpted in clay. Then a silicone mold is created of the clay bust, and a casting is made in bonded bronze, bonded stone/marble, or foundry-cast bronze.
