Dale Claude Lamphere's dynamic sculpture explores a broad range of materials and subjects from monumental landscapes, to human forms, to abstract. His body of work includes both contemporary sculpture and classic figurative works.
After 45 years as a professional sculptor, Lamphere still finds natural forms an enduring inspiration that evoke in him a distilled and elegant response. The common thread that runs through his work is the lyric gesture and full volume that he sees in his mountain and prairie environment.
Lamphere has completed over 60 major public commissions from Basilica of the National Shrine in Washington, D.C., to the Eisenhower Medical Center and the City of Burbank in California. Recent creations have been placed in Chicago, Dallas, San Antonio, Kansas City, Colorado Springs, and Edmond, Oklahoma.
Lamphere has recieved the Anna Hyatt Huntington Award and many honors for creative achievement. In 2013, he recieved the Governor's Award in the Arts for Distinction in Creative Achievement in South Dakota.
