Bronze Portrait Busts

“One of the benefits of sculpting portraits is the enjoyment of learning about the people I sculpt. Every life has a story to tell and our stories are written on our faces and shine through our eyes.”

Sculpting portraits is Paula Slater’s passion! She has sculpted more than three dozen bronze portrait busts–probably more bronze busts sculpted than any living sculptor today. When sculpting a portrait, Slater strives to capture not only the detailed physical features and likeness, but also the character and spirit of the individual. It’s as if the viewer can peer into the eyes of her portrait sculptures and sense the essence of the person. Because bronze is the ‘King of Metals’, bronze sculpture will outlive us all. Thus a bronze portrait bust can become a timeless public memorial or a cherished family heirloom that can be passed down through future generations.
