(I believe birth is a pathway to eternity. Bones remain the sole witness of a mortal existence and provide a narrative of our earthly life. My work shows that death is not morbid, but simply the end of growth; I strive to resurrect forgotten spirits and recover stories of those deceased. In my sculptures, bones have a voice and can speak for themselves.)

Keith Plummer, born in 1954 in Damariscotta, currently resides on Oyster Creek in Coastal Maine. He has studied metal smithing with Michael Good and attended numerous workshops at Maine College of Art in Portland, Maine. Keith is a self-taught sculptor whose experimental evolution has lead him to create a body of work that incorporates the precision of metallurgy with an inventive transformation of bone into anthropomorphic form. His concept pieces evoke contemplation about the significance of bones as a narrative of the human condition.
