About this Artist

Rosalie Sherman

"I make hardware that is sculptural and functional. My aim is to bring a sense of fun and enjoyment to its everyday use. "

After many years of making site-specific public sculpture, Rosalie Sherman has turned her attention to the home. In her studio outside of Philadelphia, she creates hardware that is also affordable sculpture for residential dwellings. She creates hooks that are giraffes and penguins, knobs of dogs named Bob and Louise, and myriad animals and people you could hang your hat on, literally. It pleases Sherman to know her little cast of characters is opening cabinets and holding brooms in homes around the world.

The artist first makes her designs out of clay, then casts them into plastic prototypes. If they are to be made in bronze, she takes them to a nearby foundry for casting. She finishes all the work, including assembling, riveting, and patinating. If they are to be made in pewter, she sends them to a mold maker who makes vulcanized rubber molds for her. She casts and finishes most of the pewter pieces herself, although she also has her mold maker cast some of the pieces as well.

Sherman trained as a sculptor at the Philadelphia College of Art, where she earned a B.F.A. in 1968. She has been a sculptor for over forty years and has spent fifteen of those years making site-specific public sculptures, learning additional methods of fabrication along the way. She has also trained at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, Polytek in Easton, PA, with Lucartha Kohler at Wheaton Village in New Jersey and Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia, and at Peter's Valley Craft Center in Layton, NJ.

  • Pewter Not Chrome

Cons

    Best Uses

    • My Purse And Jacket

    Comments about Giraffe Hooks, Large left:

    Ordered two large hooks for our pantry entry, wanted someplace to hang my purse and coat and have something that looked good, not just another coat hook. Perfect size, high quality workmanship. One for my husband, one for me, and no more purse and coats hanging from the kitchen island bar stools. Only wanted two hooks so I would not end up with a huge collection of fleeces and coats hanging in plain sight, just the one I am currently wearing. Very happy.

    Lovely little works of art

    By

    Comments about Giraffe Hooks, Large left:

    They are so lovely that I don't really want to cover them with coats. These are little works of art. I appreciate the fact that the small one is a different animal, not just the larger one shrunken down.

      Comments about Giraffe Hooks, Large left:

      It's intended as a Christmas present for a friend who's a professional animal photographer and who won a prize for a photograph she took in Africa of a mother giraffe and her new-born baby. (The baby's umbilical cord can be seen in the photo.)

      Not your Father's robe hook!

      By 

      from Richmond, Virginia

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about Giraffe Hooks, Large left:

      What a great idea! The giraffe robe hook in my bathroom gives me a chuckle to start the day - it takes an ordinary object and gives it character. The large giraffe is a perfect size for robe or towel, and with four screws, it is very secure. The casting has a very pleasing hand-cast appearance.
