I want to thank you for creating the piece. No matter how troubled the world news is, or how tired or low my spirits may be, I know I can gaze upon that magnificent steed and see the world as it ought to be free, intelligent, proud, virile and radiating a love of life in his every fibre and movement. You couldn’t have created all that by accident. But you did express it, with skill and eloquence, and you touched my soul.
Flying across the ivory sands of the Egyptian desert on the back of a magnificent Arabian stallion with the Pyramids of Giza silhouetted against the radiant glow of dawn, experiencing the excitement of the Moroccan Fantasia at the royal stables as a guest of King Hassan II, marveling at the beautiful Fountains of Rome and classic sculptures of Michelangelo in the Vatican – that is what dreams are made of!
Judy's memories from that desert ride, from her travels and from and her life-long love of horses has resulted in an unequalled collection of bronze horse sculptures, ranging from miniature to monumental life-size. A premier artist of Equine Bronze Sculptures, Judy Nordquist’s sculptures have established the precedence for excellence in Equine Art. Her love and passion for the magnificent horse is revealed in breathtaking bronze sculptures as the exciting spirit of the horse comes alive!
From early childhood, Kim helped her mother warm the clay she used to sculpt as they would sit together for hours, chatting as Judy worked on a new sculpture. Kim found it to be a natural progression following in her mother’s footsteps. She began designing elegant equine jewelry in 1990 and is now working in tandem with Judy to create bronze sculptures which are coveted by Arabian horse lovers around the globe. Kim feels that her artwork allows her a creative outlet that is uplifting and rejuvenating. Together, the mother-daughter team has travelled the world researching the history and culture of the Arabian horse. Their bronzes are collected internationally and the list of people who commission and collect their work reads like an international Who’s Who of Arabian horse enthusiasts.
From their Arabian horse sculptures of graceful miniature foals to the powerful monumental life-size bronzes, their bronze sculptures and equine jewelry transcend simple anatomical likeness to evoke the spirit of the Arabian horse. Judy and Kim have created over 200 different Collector’s Limited Bronze Editions ranging in size from miniatures to Life-Size. They have been commissioned by several prominent breeders throughout the world to create portrait sculptures of champion and award-winning horses.
When creating a portrait bronze, numerous detailed measurements and photos are taken to accurately represent each horse. Also, with each bronze portrait they prefer to spend some time with the horse -- every horse is so different. "By seeing your horse with our hands, we can capture their unique spirit and presence and make the bronze come alive!" We cherish all of the horses and owners we have met and worked closely with throughout the years.
