Artist Douwe Blumberg’s sculpture Reflections is a bronze and stainless steel, life-size image of a horse drinking in a pond. It stands 10-feet-tall, but Douwe has also produced a table-sized version as well.
Blumberg, the son of two artists, grew up in Europe and the United States. Although he earned a degree in art, he chose to become professional horse trainer for 18 years. During that period he never stopped sculpting, and eventually his artistic endeavors grew and he faced a choice between his two careers. In 2001 he closed his barn to devote his full time to sculpture.
Blumberg resides in Louisville, Ky., and keeps a studio in Los Angeles, Calif.
