Jim Harris, Triton Submarine Pilot

Piloted Triton 3300/3 sub that filmed world's first giant squid.

"I love your sculptures! Especially the Giant Squid! I am the pilot who drove the Triton submersible for Dr. Kubodera and Magic Man Sugita on our dive where we filmed the Giant Squid off Chi Chi Jima, Japan. I also had the pleasure to pilot dives on that trip for Dr. Steve O'Shea and Dr. Edie Widder.  It was a good trip. When I saw your sculpture of the Giant Squid I said "that guy has got it!" Now.... how am I gonna add one to my 
G-Squid collection? 
Keep up the good work."

Marine Biologist, NOAA 

"I have seen live leafy sea dragons. Anyone that can make ... something so lithe, and feathery made out of metal is the work of a magician - not an artist. The balance (standing) is also stable despite such a high center of gravity.... There is great perception and science behind Kirk's art - truly amazing."

Tom is a 30 year career marine biologist, research diver and has been lucky enough to have his hands on a number of rare marine species including a giant squid in 1994, and a translucent blanket octopus in 2008.

"Hi Kirk,
We received the certificate yesterday.
Here she is in a beautiful spot by our pool in Australia... not her permanent home but definitely one that does her beauty justice! We actually keep her on a beautiful glass topped, New Guinea rosewood coffee table where we admire her every night. Thank-you for being an artist of meticulous standards. We hope to engage your talents 
in the future!" Kindest regards

2020, 5 out of five stars 

"The Whale & Squid bronze sculpture 'Epic' is truly awesome and magnificent, intricately detailed, and created with impeccable precision. The artistry is outstanding, extraordinary, and unsurpassed. The packing of the sculpture was extremely well done and very professional, and the sculpture was promptly shipped and arrived safely in perfect condition. There is clearly no doubt that this artist takes much pride in his lifework, demonstrates an exemplary work ethic, and is extremely passionate about his craft. I am delighted to own such a pristine and museum-quality bronze sculpture that so nicely complements the other bronze sculptures I already have in my collection. If I decide to purchase another exquisite bronze sculpture in the future, I will surely get in contact with this artist again without hesitation."

2015, Collectors, Sabine Buske & Families holiday home. The ancient North Seas Island of Föhr-Amrum 
in the district of Friesland, NORDFRIESLAND, in Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY.

"Dear Kirk, some minutes ago, the leafy sea dragon, and octopus table arrived in my home (see the attached picture) Thanks a lot, it is wonderful. I love it!!! It will get a place in the middle of the new house and we will love it for years."

"As I promised I sent you some photos about the new home of your treasures. The house stands (as I told you) on the small island Amrum in Friesland with a varied past with seafaring and whale hunting in the arctic sea. We built the house as an ancient model, but the old houses (there are lots of them on the island) are lower with small windows (I send you a picture of an old house, too) The house will be painted white next spring… The octopus table arrived well this morning. 
Really marvelous!!!!!!!!!!!!! New home of your two wonderful works of art; it is on an island in the north sea in a rough area and the sea is nearby. Thanks a lot! Have a good time, stay healthy and best regards..."

2015, purchase of 'Cephalopod' table, and 'Leafy' bronzes.

"Beautiful piece. Fast shipping. Great Communication."

"Kirk McGuire creates museum-quality art sculptures and sculpture tables. First, he sculpts the originals, molds them, and pours waxes from each mold. After the wax work, he delivers them to a foundry in Monterey where they cast each piece. Once he picks it up and finishes the process, your art piece is ready to wow! Often inspired by the ocean, his pieces are ideal for luxe, modern and beach-themed interiors, but merge well in any environment. Check out his Etsy shop and his website for more information."
