Handcrafted Amorini from P & G Art

March 30th, 2008


Amorini (ah.more.een.ee)

These diminutive and charming wall hanging sculptures are designed and handcrafted by Peter Lu and Gerrie Walker from Sebastopol, California. They call them Amorini, which translates to "Little Loves" from Greek mythology – cupid's silly and sublime younger brothers that were reintroduced into painting sculpture and decorative arts during the renaissance.

More of Peter and Gerrie's work can be found at their charming art studio, P & G Art, also known as Putto & Gargoyle, at 7202 Bodega Avenue, Sebastopol, California. The studio opens Thursday through Sunday, 10 AM to 5 PM. Telephone 707.829.8701
