Cow and Calf, original cast bonze sculpture by Cao Chong En (2010)
Since Cao's emphasis is on sculptures of people, it is rare to see animals as the subjects of his sculptures, although he does have a huge bull in one of his studios.
It is a very loving piece showing the mother caring for her baby calf.

Song of the Steel Workers, original Cast Bronze sculpture by Pan He

Picasso-esque Glass Bust
We loved this deconstructionist glass bust when we saw it. It reminds us of something Pablo Picasso might have done, had he worked in glass. As with many of the glass objects that we offer, some of the color is trapped inside the glass, like the brown in the face and the red in the tuft of hair. However, the eyes and ear are separate colored glass built onto the surface and the black lips and brow ridge are also done that way.
It is a very weighty piece at 3 kg (about 7 pounds), and it measures 31 cm high, 16 cm from the tip of its nose to the tuft of hair, and 7 cm thick. All in all, it is a very different kind of glass object d'art, and you will not find a similar one when you walk into a friend's home. It is the type of thing that will fit in with many styles of home decor. It is simply a very lively, colorful, and fun piece, and it's definitely not your grandmother's glass figurine.
Autumn Wind, original cast bronze sculpture by Xu Hong Fei (许鸿飞)
As the autumn wind catches her dress, she crosses he legs, demurely, like a cute little girl. Xu Hongfei thinks that voluptuous women are the most beautiful, graceful, and fun, which is the reason he created his chubby series.
We love Xu's sculptures for their movement, creativity and detail, and this one is really a fun piece.

|13.||Turtle Dragon Teapot Sculpture
Perhaps you would prefer a turtle dragon teapot sculpture, instead of cast bronze. The monster and beasty themes that are a part of teapot art, today, are ones that we particularly enjoy, not only because of their creativity, but also because they have taken teapot art in new directions. By now, they are made by a number of artists, and we have chosen from among the best of those to include in our catalogue. This dragon monster has the head of a bearded dragon, a scaly chest, legs and tail, and a protective shell, like a turtle. It is made from zisha clay by Yi Xing's second factory (in China, the word factory is used for what we, in the U.S., would call a large multi-artist studio), formed by mold and detailed by hand, which is the usual method of crafting these modern beasty things. It is well-made and colorful, and it has appeal, not only for those who collect teapot art, but also for people who are fond of figurines or sculpture. He measures 16cm long, 8 cm wide, and 9 cm high.
