LDS Sculptor Used Gospel to Reclaim Life

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Utah sculptor Stan Watts says he has "seen both sides." Watts was mired in habits that had taken control of his life as recently as four years ago when he decided to turn to God for help. To make the change, Watts wrote a mission statement, "To enlighten the children of men through fine art" and implementing that statement has turned his life around. He now works on his own sculptures, instead of helping to fashion those of others, and has created a bronze statue of Mormon Pioneers, ornate bronze doors for the LDS Winter Quarters Temple and recently finished a 2,400-pound life-size sculpture of the Founding Fathers that is on display at the Gateway shopping center in Salt Lake City.
