Pence Animal Sculptures is a family business including sisters (Darlene, Shirley) and their niece Sherri. We have been in business for over 40 years making and design our own pieces. We never use molds, every piece is an original. Talent, creativity and the love of animals goes into each and every one of our designs.
The basic materials used are clay in moist form and tools for carving and texture. We start with a lump of clay and mold it into the animal of our choice with our hands. A potters wheel is used for some parts of the designs. Once the sculpture is molded, we dry it in the sun for several days. The next step is to fire it to stoneware in an electric kiln. This process insures quality and lasting durability. Once fired we use various glazes to enhance color. At this point our sculpture is complete.
Pence Animal Sculptures will capture your heart. Their expressions are the key to our success. We have been in business for a very long time and each piece embodies our knowledge and experience. There is no question that our work draws a crowd. It is very much admired and appreciated.
Pence Animal Sculptures have received numerous awards and are in collections worldwide. Come visit us at one of our shows this year or order your own pet online. We hope you enjoy your Pence Animal Sculpture as much as we enjoyed making it for you.
