Self-taught sculptor James Bonner was first inspired by the special effects artists of early eighties horror films. His youth was spent building monsters and zombie puppets in his parents' Michigan basement. Film and video classes at Michigan State University diverted him into an interest in writing and directing, where he won two student Emmys before graduating college. He wrote and directed a feature film and eventually moved to LA to continue pursuing his love of sculpting.

Sculpted portraiture is one of the most difficult art forms and Bonner embraces the challenge. He obsesses over capturing not just the features of a subject's face, but also the inner qualities that suggest life. Making a shape of clay seem to have internal thoughts is what drives him. Whether imbuing a monster with magnetism or a writer with their private thoughts, Bonner injects a vitality and realism into his work that the increasingly computer driven 3D rendering scene fails to convey.

With a history of candy making going all the way back to 1920, we at Morkes Chocolates continue to make our chocolate confections from scratch, with all natural chocolate, pure butter, fresh roasted nuts, and a lot of fun.

Respecting the traditional chocolates of the past, Morkes Chocolates manufacturers our own cream centers - butter, vanilla, maple, orange and raspberry creams, to name a few. However, we are not an ‘old’ chocolate company in any sense. We celebrate innovation and are constantly testing new recipes to add to our chocolate line, while always striving to maintain our true mission of a pure, natural and great tasting chocolate confection.

Devil In A Bottle vodka is a smooth, full strength spirit manufactured from a recipe found written on a faded parchment sheet hidden in the walls of an abandoned Italian villa over 200 years ago. This silky smooth vodka is as unique as the mystery that surrounds it. Devil In A Bottle vodka truly is the wicked spirit.

I love creatures, characters, monsters, and spirits. I like to think of each of my sculptures as a glimpse into an untold story, with the task of completion left to the viewer.

I hope that viewing my work leads you into a little daydream.
