“I am a retired professional baseball player who now creates unique sculptures full time using a variety of materials including recycled tires, wood, epoxy, metal and more. I love working with new materials and always challenging myself to learn something new.”
"I am inspired to challenge myself to make new things. I never want to recreate the same thing or use the same material over and over. By challenging myself to do something new I not only learn how to use that new material, but I may also be able to relate that knowledge to something else I make in the future. It is all about learning and growing to become the best maker and artist I can be. I also get bored very easily so I like to keep it fresh with new things!"

Rhino Sculpture

Made out of rare Black Walnut Burl and 8.5 gallons of epoxy resin, the Black Rhino took a month of painstaking effort to complete. This is a testament to Blake's uncanny ability and single-minded focus - a trait mastered from his time as a pro baseball player, to create work that embodies his appreciation and love of nature.

“I carved it down with various power tools and sanded all the way up to 5,000 grit,” said McFarland on creating his artwork using wood and resin.

“I’m not a guy that likes a lot of downtime, and I always think that if I’m watching TV I could be doing something else more productive, so that’s when I do the majority of my artwork.”

McFarland is an artist of many materials. He does not settle in just one material as he is able to create sculptures out of wires, and tires as well. “I love how it turned out.” McFarland said.
