A sculptor makes sculptures that are displayed at galleries, and if the artist is lucky, in museums. How much does the average sculpture make per year? That depends on the popularity of the sculptor's artwork and demand for art at the time. The state of the economy can also play into how much artists get paid for their art (as with any commodity).
