John Kessler

Powerful Grizzlies, majestic buffalo, graceful cougars emerge from a unique form of volcanic glass known as “expanded obsidian.” Originating from  the Yosemite National Park region of California, this rare type of lava is pure glass that erupted underwater giving its porous texture that allows artist John Kessler to bring to life these wonderful animals.  The shear texture of the obsidian lava combined with the strength and boldness of Kessler’s style gives the sculpture a presence unlike any other.
