Learn More About Loet Vanderveen

Loet Vanderveen began his love for wildlife by visiting the local zoo, and helping the zookeepers care for the animals. At the same time, this aided with understanding and loving animals. Ultimately, he loved animals and this was reflected throughout his artistic career.

Vanderveen began making ceramics for a living by working under a ceramist in New York, and experimenting with bronze elements.  As a result, his knowledge of ceramics and sculpture expanded rapidly.  His animals became more rendered and realistic by studying and experimenting. He continued to develop new crystallizing techniques, and colorful patinas to enhance the craftsmanship and quality of each animal. As a result, Vanderveen’s continuous years of experimenting developed into his famous animal sculptures and brought him into an international spotlight.

Vanderveen continued his research by traveling to safaris where he studied animals even closer.  As a result, his animals became more interactive.  Monkeys swinging, crawling, or climbing to show enhance their beauty. Ultimately, his love for animals never died, and his ability to freeze an animal’s natural pose is truly incredible.  Lastly, you can collect your own bronze sculpture by contacting
