Years ago, I purchased a beautiful green pear sculpture, which had a place of honor in my family room. Just looking at that pear made me happy! However, when our golden retriever Ben joined the family, his large enthusiastic tail knocked my pear off the table.
When I saw this picture from Suzanne Kasler's portfolio, I asked her where she got the beautiful pear sculptures on her kitchen table (this image is from her previous house). She purchased them years ago at Lars Bolander's store in New York, and the were one of a kind.
I continued to keep my eye out for pear sculptures, and you can imagine my delight when I found the pear artist again recently! I promptly purchased a green pear, and asked the artist if she would like to sell her pears through my store, Quatrefoil Design.
The artist is Lisa Olliff, and she has always had a passion for art and sculpture. In recent years she decided to pursue her love for sculpture and pottery, and her skill, talent, and creativity really shine through! Pears are one of her favorite subject matters, for their organic beauty.

Her pears are so beautiful, and as they are hand made, each has a character of its own. I haven't decided where I will put mine, but there are so many options!

They would look great in a small grouping, on a kitchen table, similar to how Suzanne had her pears arranged in her house.

The pears look great as part of a tablescape on a chest. Do you spy the pear in this vignette?

The possibilities are endless!
