As a general statement about his sculpture, Allen Littlefield explains that his current work, both vessels and sculpture, is to be viewed as “future artifacts”, objects that foreshadow what may be found in museums 3,000 years from now.
The sculpture and fragments might reveal some of our alleged martyrs and saints; the vessels are based on ritual and liturgical reliquaries and sacred containers.
His current work is more oriented towards the value of friends in our lives. Friends of a different stripe, odd friends, "colorful" friends, etc. His sculptures are appealing to the eye and wonderful conversation pieces.
