Animals in Sculpture: Bellacera, Launer, Meredith, Rives

Four sculptors have different approaches to their reverent expression of animals in sculpture.

Ali Launer beads actual animal skulls, adorning them with designs that elevate and celebrate the natural beauty of the animal.

Kari Rives expressively models her clay animals and embodies each one with its own spirit and soul.

David Meredith's bronze animals are at once sweetly approachable and extremely sophisticated in their art deco-insprired renderings.

Paula Bellacera's fun ceramic animals are highly expressive and often wildly colored.
