Pets on Parade Auction Items 2017

Item #1: Custom Steel Dog Sculpture from artist, Larry Lobaugh 

You could have your very own steel dog customized by Larry Lobaugh. For those of you who were with us last year, you saw his amazing “Woody” – an incredible work of art made from 1,700 wooden shims, over 650 feet of wine, and 30 square feet of chicken wire. Pictured here are Woody and his brother Ash, a black lab. Ash is made of reclaimed wood, some of which was over 100 years old, burned in Japanese method “charred wood” in English. Ash took several months to produce to allow for the curing of the wood. Larry is an incredibly talented artist, and this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss!

About the Artist: With 16 years of experience as VP of Photography at Victoria;’s Secret and over 30 years experience as Art Director for international brands – including Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy’s, and Bloomingdale’s, Larry Lobaugh brings a great deal of artistic creativity to his steel pup creations.
