An instructor in the arts of ceramics, Kimberly Cook knows how to make her animal statues look amazing and stand apart from the rest.

Accenting her charismatic ceramic critters, the artist coats certain details with gold coloring in order to give them a luxuriously rich look that contrasts with the gray and white tones of the animals. Spiky crowns, chunky chains and a stash of guns add a hardcore element to the sculptures, making the animals seem a bit more gangster, like they have a devious side to them that hides behind an innocent facade. Lambs, rabbits and deer, normally considered gentle, are given a darker personality that hints at danger and a bit of trouble.
