Overview

Height: 11.5 in, Width: 6 in, Depth:

Award-winning artist Kitty Cantrell is best known for her striking sculpture of North American wildlife. Intricately designed and detailed her sculptures capture the true expressions of animals that have never known human touch.

Wolves, eagles and humpback whales are just a few subjects this native Californian has chosen to sculpt since beginning her professional career. Cantrell believes that the art she creates is a tool for spreading a deeper understanding of the earth’s creatures. “If my sculptures can make people think about wildlife,” Kitty says, “then maybe they will feel compelled to help protect it.”

As a native of Southern California, Kitty Cantrell attributes her respect for all living things to a childhood spent in the Mojave Desert. It was in this arid environment that she became acutely aware of the rhythms of nature and she constantly challenges herself to incorporate this understanding into her artwork.

Kitty Cantrell has had a lifelong fascination with everything wild. She has studied the behaviors of animals with an artist’s eye and imagination. Her driving passion has been to capture the essence of the animals she chooses to depict in her artwork. As a self-taught sculptor, she has refined her skills as an artist for nearly a quarter of a century. It is her unique ability to capture the emotion of how we as the viewer feel about the animals she chooses to create, which has won her countless awards and critical acclaim. Her identification with the subject matter has led her to be one of the most widely collected wildlife artists working in the United States today.

How It's Made
This sculpture began as an original hand sculpted clay model by the artist. It was delivered to the Starlite Studios Foundry in California where skilled artisans sectioned it into a myriad of component parts for casting. A multitude of steps followed including hand tooling, metal plating, patina applications and extensive buffing. This process can take up to several weeks to complete. Like many of Starlite’s fine art mixed media sculptures. This piece is made from one or any combination of different materials. Including lost wax bronze, fine pewter, brass, copper, 24 karat gold vermeil and various hot torched acid patinas such as black nickel, rose copper, and turquoise, to highlight the sculpture. In addition, the sculpture may contain embellishments such as Lucite.
