George Northup - Bronze Wildlife Sculpture Lamps
Encouraged many years ago by the resident artists Grant Hagen, Conrad Schwiering, John Clymer, Hollis Williford, Bob Kuhn and others to pursue creating images in metal, George Northup made sculpture his life's work for more than 25 years.
His work has been widely acknowledged, honored, and collected. It can be found in corporate and private collections across the country and throughout the world. More recently, he had created a series of stunning bronze and copper lamps that feature sculpted wild trout accented under a table light with a buffed copper shade. In addition, George had teamed with legendary painter Bob Kuhn to create an exquisite migrating elk sculpture that leaves viewers breathless.
Before George’s passing in 2017, he spent many weeks each year traveling and researching his wildlife and sporting subjects. He continually pushed his creative mind in new directions with fellow artists, his family and his friends. Not one to live life in a boring manner, George even spent several days flying with top Naval combat aviators who treated him to a super-sonic jet ride.
George’s work is still in demand, although some editions have sold out or are close to doing so. Many of his sculptures you see here may need to be cast per order - which takes about eight weeks - and you may purchase them here. Some are still available immediately - some through at least a couple of very fine galleries that also sell his work. If you are interested in a piece, and wish to have it sooner than later, we can also inquire if these galleries have it, so that you may be able to purchase it directly from them.
