A Dancing Bronze Cat Sculpture by Laurel Peterson Gregory

Dimensions:

Edition of 85

This is Life is a Cat-baret. As with its companion piece, Gone Ball-istic, I was inspired here by the long, lean, mousing machines that live with us in rural Colorado.

These are individual characters from one of my larger pieces featuring three cats titled Night Moves.

Here I’ve sculpted a cat simply having a good time with free-style dance moves. That’s kind of what cats are about. I chose to combine texture with smooth bronze here, creating a really nice contrast. The texture provides a sense of the fur, while the polished areas give the cat a little extra bling and interest. You can see many of my style characteristics here, such as whimsy and polished dimensional lines to enhance the sense of motion.
