Jean has loved horses and other animals her entire life. She is a skilled horsewoman whose love of horses extends across all breeds and disciplines. This rich understanding is reflected in her sculptures, which capture the unique look and spirit of each subject.
Jean personally follows the details through from the original models to the finished sculptures, to ensure each casting meets her exacting standards.
Jean Clagett first fell in love with sculpture as a 13 year old, when she visited the Louvre in Paris with an aunt and saw the 'Winged Victory of Samothrace'
In developing her own style, Jean studied the animalier art of Isidore and Rosa Bonheur, 19th century French sculptors and painters. Jean's return to France allowed her to study and work, attending classes at Parsons, Paris, and working with foundries in England and France along with many across the USA.
