A Limited-Edition Bronze Scottie Sculpture by Laurel Peterson Gregory
11″h × 6″w × 6″d
Edition of 150
This is Defying Gravity. My goal with this piece was to capture the beautiful fluidity of Scotties at play. Although they may typically be a bit reserved, I wanted a pose that would show the extraordinary power of their hindquarters, the flowing of their skirts, and their boundless exuberance.
I intentionally sculpted this piece in a loose manner to underscore the sense of freedom and complete trust these two are sharing. While a vertical piece, Defying Gravity has a very circular energy—from the foundation of the lower dog to the flying hindquarters of the top dog, we can sense the move continuing before and after this frozen moment in time. There’s also a subtle twist designed to make you wonder what’s going to happen next.
