Anita Mandl

Anita Mandl was trained as a zoologist, and soon become a member of the teaching staff of the Medical School at the University of Birmingham, while attending evening classes in sculpture at the Birmingham College of Art. The sculptures that she creates are mostly simplified animal forms, along with highly polished surfaces. Each sculpture is made with dedication, with no sharp edges or hard creases in the stone or marbles. This allows for the smooth surface and simple forms of each animal created. She first started making carvings in hardwood, but soon began to explore the mediums of alabaster, soapstone and marbles. All of the bronze sculptures are cast from original carvings, and since 1987, have been cast and patinated by Pangolin Editions.
