We go to this shop quite often. Its always so interesting and fun. There is always a new "work in progress" to watch beginning with the original work in clay. And of course end-product bronze sculptures of all sizes to admire and take home. His...More

Eric is a genius. You will not find more beautiful sculptures of wildlife anywhere. His complex understandings of anatomy and natural motion make his work graceful and dramatic.

The Eric Thorsen Gallery was amazing. A fantastic artist that engaged the kids, who are burgeoning artists themselves. He took the time to answer our kids' questions and was happy to have them in there respectfully looking at all stages of his sculptures. His work...More

Clearly not everyone can afford some of the magnificent pieces in the show room. But that does not mean you shouldn't go. Quite to the contrary. Eric's attention to detail is really museum quality. My favorite is that tucked away in the back is his...More

The sculptures inside are gorgeous and very realistic. My son thought a painting was actually a photograph, it was that realistic. Eric Thorsen is very talented and has a sweet family, they were all very nice to us during our visit.
