ABOUT THE SCULPTOR
In 1988 when a sculptor friend challenged him to make something out of a piece of clay, Ken Bjorge didn’t realize it would forever change the course of his life. He found he was instantly attracted to the medium which resulted in his eventual decision to pursue his newfound passion full time and leave behind a 20 year career as a law professor at Gonzaga University, in Spokane, Washington.
He made the move to Bigfork, Montana later that same year and opened Bjorge’s Gallery & Studio where he began on his path to become a noted and sought after sculptor. Thirty years later Ken continues to fashion his images in bronze. He particularly enjoys commissions and working closely with clients to create a sculpture that accurately portrays the client’s vision. His commissioned works, which are most often monuments, are widely collected and can be found all across the country in public spaces and in businesses as well as on private properties.
Some of Ken’s clients include: Auburn University; California State University of Los Angeles; Montana State University; The University of Texas;
The University of Washington; St. Francis Highschool in La Canada, CA; Central Catholic High School in Grand Rapids, MI; Wellfield Botanic Gardens in Elkhart, IN; Metropolitan Life Insurance Co.; Dayton Hudson/Target Corp.; Westinghouse Corp.; The City of Dothan, AL; The Living Desert Wildlife Park of Palm Desert, CA; Trademark Acquisition & Development Co. of Fort Worth, TX; Lincoln Harris Corp.; The International Order of St. Hubertus; First Interstate Bank of Bigfork, MT; and Majestic Valley, LLC as well as numerous private individuals.
