"Fawn," Art Deco Sculpture by Waylande Gregory


Gorgeously glazed in tones of brown and gold, this very rare sculpture depicting a spotted fawn was created by Waylande Gregory, the renowned WPA sculptor and innovative ceramicist. Prodigious and indefatigable, Gregory produced a wide range of sculptures and wares in ceramic beginning in his college days, through his years working with Lorado Taft and later when he created large multi-figure pieces for WPA projects, institutions and public parks. A major retrospective of Gregory's work was recently organized by the University of Richmond's Museums.
