    I own several pieces of Sullivanesque, and as a sculptor I’ve made a design for a client’s townhouse in Chicago when he couldn’t find anything suitable.
    Now I am working on a model of one of his 1894 James Scoville building terracotta pieces after finding a photo of one on a Virginia museum’s web site.
