Dr. Ed Yalisove (1954 - ) loves nature and art, as a young boy Dr. Yalisove was inspired by his love of art and a family friend to try his hand at subject. In the basement of his Wilmington dental practice he combines those influences into the unique copper and wood sculptures that can be seen all over his office. Dr. Ed Yalisove loves nature and art. He found a way to combine them by teaching himself how to cut copper out of big sheets to create the leaves, feathers or critters that make his pieces come to life. it all started about five years ago when Dr. Yalisove’s sister gave him the opportunity to purchase a copper mobile for his garden. He didn’t like the style, so he decided to make one himself. Dr. Yalisove gave himself one year to do the project. He bought some copper, and within four months he had a hawk mobile for his garden. He continued to work with the copper and, after about a year, decided to branch out. “I started doing some copper trees in wood bases and its been evolving ever since,” Dr. Yalisove said. Dr. Yalisove is driven by his love of nature and desire to make people smile. Both through his dental work and his artwork. “I want people to enjoy nature and to appreciate nature, to get out in nature. I also want people to smile.”
