Edward Hlavka


Born in Deadwood, South Dakota, Ed began pinching clay and developing an interest in sculpture at ten years of age. His unique ability to portray characterizations delight the many people across the country who view and collect his art. Exactness of detail, whimsy and grace of figurative design are hallmarks of Hlavka's work.

He is available for commissions including monuments, custom bronze fountains, and portraits.
