Ronnie’s animals appear to have a life force of their own. They reflect their animal pride and distinction. Each sculpture is individually hand-built in stoneware to enhance the animal’s own unique movements, expressions, and personality.

Just as animals have their own personalities, the firing processes add unique and exciting characteristics to the sculptures.
