VERINA S. BAXTER SPEAKS OUT ABOUT HER EXPERIENCE WITH AES IN CREATION OF HER THREE SCULPTURES.
"Often, when discussing my sculpture, I make the comment that I work with an amazing company and 'if I can dream it - together we can built it.' This statement is a reference to AES Manufacture. Steve's knowledge, experience and top quality craftsmanship guaranties a positive experience and a successful project." - Verina s. Baxter
Over the last few years, Verina has made it a habit to consult AES's founder and head supervisor Steve Morgan when an inspiration, originating either from herself or other, calls for immediate action. Without Steve, no action would take place at all if not for his speedy precision and crafty workmanship.

JIM COLLINS » Sculptor
With the help of Steve, internationally famous sculpture Jim Collins was able to provide Chattanooga with its much loved piece of art 'Volumes' located outside the Library in downtown Chattanooga. Not only does this library provide countless books and newspapers geared toward every subject of every age, it in turn gives "readers a glimpse of Chattanooga's culture and customs of the past. We can search historic newspapers in hopes of finding the details that bring a story to life." - (Chattanooga public library). This stainless steel fountain signifies the outpouring and forthcoming provision of books that don't merely teach, but equips this young generation to speak fluidly and attain an awareness and appreciation of the world in which they live to the benefit of not only themselves, but every individual. To play the role in creating a piece of art that represents the value in books, yet better still the value in learning, is something both Jim and Steve live for - To give meaning to the world around us through visual arts.
► Pictured here, in Balbriggan Ireland, both Steve and Jim had the unique privilege to deliver this piece of art titled "The Dragon Family" to the St. George's National School. Standing at a height of 12 feet, this stainless steel construction serves as a reminder of the school's patron, Saint George. The school writes, "As well of being the patron saint of our school, Saint George is the patron saint of England. According to a legend, Saint George of Lydda killed a dragon and saved the lives of many people. It is sometimes called ‘The Golden Legend’. Saint George’s Day (also England’s National Day) is on April 23rd, although this is not a holiday in the UK or Ireland. He is the patron saint of many other countries, too – including Greece, Palestine, Georgia, Portugal and Russia. Saint George is the patron saint of the Boy Scouts of America."
