Laura Teste

Bloomfield, MI, United States

Laura Testé (b. 1968) is an American sculptor whose bronzes are identified with the female form. Laura uses the lost wax method to cast her bronze sculptures in Michigan, USA. Laura Testé was raised in Lebanon, Ohio where ordinary people pursued the extraordinary. Her neighbors walked on the moon or collected Emmy nominations. That was her baseline. With this worldview, she earned degrees in both design and engineering from Stanford University in California. California became a recurring source of inspiration. Laura attributes her respect for female athleticism to the Stanford Rowing Team. That experience gave her an unshakable appreciation for the grace and energy of the human anatomy. Years later, galleries along California's Highway 1 inspired her to embrace sculpting full-time. Laura’s recent bronze series delights audiences. She captures lithesome figures in mid-swirl with a bloom of fabric or a quiet gesture. She pays tribute to several pillars of self-reliance. Laura Testé was selected as one of nine sculptors for a recent exhibition in Saint-Tropez, France. Also, the Arthur Secunda Museum, located in Michigan, hosted a solo show of her VIM & VIGOR series. Laura’s award-winning work is displayed in galleries in South Carolina, Michigan, and Grimaud, France.
