David Hostetler is the creator of a series of original and captivating works in wood and bronze that honor and celebrate the female form. Inspired by goddesses and celebrated women of historical significance, Hostetler has based his entire life's work on capturing the spirit, romance and earthiness of the "feminine" in exotic woods and in bronze. Whether revealing the sensuousness of the female figure or rendering visible the gift of the feminine intuition, Hostetler's works are moving, intriguing and a pleasure to touch and see.
Originated with material shot for a film project by The Nature Conservancy and The Bowen House to document living "Icons" of Ohio. Filmaker Eric Homen added more footage of David in his studio and home in Athens to add to the Hostetler story. Film is 19 minutes.
