  1. A great list!
    Thanks for remember the sculptors, sometimes our work goes unnoticed under the painting work, it’s an honour to be in the list with a lot of great sculptors.

  2. No wonder you like the list, the author seems to have a mad raging boner for your sculpts.

    Your sculpts are great, but there are many other artists that deserve a place on this list. Rather than almost 20% of it being dedicated to you, and almost the same amount again for Patrick Masson.

    Very poor and lazy article in my opinion.
