I have more recently started sculpting ceramic animals. Most dramatic, stylized, and popular are raku elephants. I also sculpt cats, bears, and seal pups. Many customers collect particular animals - like elephants or rabbits. I will also attempt any animal.

I start my sculpted animals with a block of clay and an idea of size and proportion. No molds are used. I build over several days until I'm happy. The animals are then air dried, bisque fired, hand glazed, and then raku or glaze fired. With the vast number of variables no animals are ever the same.

I usually have 3 to 5 elephants available and can sculpt other animals on request. If you find something you like in this gallery I will be happy to e-mail you pictures of what is available or commission for you a preferred animal (See: Buying and Ordering).
