Native American Bronze Perfect for a Southwest Home

See our fine art collection Video Translation: Hi this is Jennifer here with City Farmhouse Antiques and I have a beautiful bronze to share with you today from the artist John Pettis. I just love this piece. He is a really young artist. He actually started creating bronze works of art at the age of 18 and is completely self taught so I am just mesmerized when I look at his work. Look at her face and the detail in the piece. I love the expression on the baby's face. This piece is like a bust mounted on a wooden base titled "A Hand Full". I just love it. I love her braids and the colors. This piece is so life-like. I will turn her around so you can see her. John was born in northwest Montana and was raised around cowboys and hunters. You can see his work replicates his life and childhood of how he grew up. Look at the child's hand around the braid and her hair. This artist is becoming more popular and the fact that he was self taught I think learning to do this on his own is incredible and he not only sculpts but does his own casting work and finishes of the patina on each piece. I like the expression he captures and the color and the style of how the pieces are done. They are very western and rugged American. There you can see this piece is signed and dated 1999 and is number 8 of only 75 made. I just love how they look. I wanted to share this bronze with you and a little about the artist. Again, titled A Hand Full. This bronze piece and others are up on our website. Our inventory is always changing so go check out our website where we have more than just antiques at www.cityfarmhouseantiques.com and go give us a like on Facebook. I measured this piece earlier and she about 12" tall by 5" wide so not a large piece, but a cute size for tabletop design in a southwest home.
