Bringing horses to life
Lindsey lovingly hand-sculpts each horse from a custom made raku clay. Nails, bolts or clay pegs reinforce the legs, giving them strength and durability during sculpting and firing. With more than 25 years of horsemanship education and experience, Lindsey's understanding of equine anatomy and her love of the moving horse inform and inspire her creations. Raku is known for its unpredictability, resulting in a variety of colors and patterns that complement the characteristics of horses. As the fire surrounds each piece, it leaves a unique mark changing the color of the glaze and makes each piece a unique creation.
The horses began in 2006 while studying Animal Science at the University of Vermont. At that time, Lindsey had already decided to pursue further education in clay, but was continuing to finish her science degree. During her final year, she created an independent study to explore animals in art and it was in this exploration that the horses were born. Over 1,000 different horses have been made over the past ten years with a variety of sizes, positions and colors. To see a current selection of horses for sale, please visit our Etsy store.
