The walls of the house belonging to James Gavril are plastered (in some cases, literally) with different figures bursting to life from their sculpted form. Each turn around a corner reveals a new image captured in bronze or plaster, giving the house a museum-like quality all its own. ���I am inspired to catch a moment that is uniquely human,�� Gavril said as he sat across from a work in progress of two basketball players in a midair confrontation -- heavy expressions, clothing that appears to have evidence of gravity pulling on it, the tone of muscles all seem to breathe life from the clay itself.
