  1. I would like to submit to you a picture of one of Tino’s sculptures. I met him in 1987 when he lived on Whidbey Island in the town of Oak Harbor, WA.
    He taught me how to make molds for cold casting with resins. I moved away from Oak Harbor in 1990. When I came back to Oak Harbor for a visit in ’94 he and his lady friend were living in a retirement home and he was then in a wheelchair and had alzhiemers. 1995 I moved back to Oak Harbor I found out he had passed away. I knew him as a wonderful teacher of art and design. We spent hours together and he would show me his porcelain cups and various resin reproductions and molds and their complexities. I have one of his bird paintings and 3 sculptures. I wish I had more. Also his mission statement detailing his thoughts on art and its meanings to man.

    1. Ken. I have “Cat” sculpture. Signed and dated. I’ve been wanting to sell it, but knew nothing about the artist until recently.

  2. I came across a small (7″) sculpture of two penguins in a vintage shop yesterday, signed and dated by him in 1955. It bears the copyright mark but I’m assuming it never went into production. Quite lovely! I’d love to share some photos. I’ve written to his nephew to see if I can learn more. It seems to be made of a composite stone fleck and plaster of some sort, with a transparent stain.

  3. The ape one IS 1952. I can send you a picture of it if you need.
