Pete Zaluzec

Even the briefest glance at Pete Zaluzec’s new tabletop sculptures of North American wildlife leaves an instant impression of the animals they so expressively depict.  The unique results are so pleasing that demand for these animal sculptures has grown.  In response, he has begun making second-generation molds from the stone-and-bronze originals and recasting them entirely in bronze limited editions.  The mass of these sculptures, their impressive impact, derives in part from the fact that irregularly shaped natural stones figure prominently in their creation, while bold touches of fired bronze fill in the blanks, pulling each piece into riveting focus.
