About

"Daisy" is a bronze sculpture of a stylized rabbit that stands 9 3/4 inches tall by 4 inches wide by 6 inches deep. This piece features art nouveau and art deco inspired etchings inside the ears, on the rabbits face, chest and paws. It has a warm stone-like patina. This piece is numbered 5 of a limited edition of 50. John Maisano has been an artist for more than 25 years, but the inspiration to sculpt came in 2001 with my first commission, a life-sized bronze ornithomimid dinosaur for the Hartman Prehistoric Garden in Austin. Since then, he has created a variety of commissioned monuments in bronze, including realistic sculptures of prehistoric wildlife. I've also developed a body of stylized, limited-edition bronze animal art, The Collection, which debuted in Loveland, Colorado in 2007. Mason has worked as exhibit designer and artist-in-residence at the Texas Memorial Museum at the University of Texas at Austin since 2000. he has also been involved in two Dino Pit projects, one for the Austin Nature and Science Center and the other for Williamson County. Maisano is a member of the Texas Sculpture Association and the Texas Society of Sculptors. Before moving to Austin, he was exhibit designer and artist-in-residence at Yale University’s Peabody Museum of Natural History in New Haven, Connecticut for 12 years. Mason's skills and experience as a museum exhibit designer, muralist, painter and theatre set designer have brought many interesting projects his way over the years. About The Collection. Maisano's current body of work was inspired by the styles of Art Nouveau and Art Deco, which he feels represent the high point of design. He tries to capture the spirit of each animal with clean shapes accented by intricate designs. Some tend toward the whimsical, while others are simply elegant. Monuments & Realism. His monuments have been commissioned by private parties for public venues. He enjoys the challenges of creating large-scale sculptures, which require great attention to detail and reach a larger audience. "It's rewarding to work with each client individually to make their visions come to life."
