Since the pieces are on a larger scale, they take an upwards of six months to complete. Baliker’s piece “A Matter of Time” was sculpted from cedar driftwood collected around the Gulf of Mexico. For this piece he used chainsaws, sanders and rotary grinders and was submitted for the ArtPrize competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2011. Bronze sculpture “Fish Story” was finished in 1994 and took Baliker almost three years to complete. It was donated the Mariners Hospital by the Tassell Family and can now be seen at the entrance to the Tassell Medical Arts Building on the hospital campus.
Baliker’s work is also displayed in numerous private, local and corporate collections, including the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, Orlando; Oceanside Country Club, Ormond Beach; and Hammock Dunes Links, Palm Coast.
