Eleonor Boström Puts Her Ceramic Dog Sculptures to Work for You

Eleonor Bostrom ceramic dog sculptures

While there, I looked an impres­sive col­lec­tion of dog stat­ues (and end­ed up buy­ing a pooch known as a spaghet­ti poo­dle), and it got me think­ing about Eleonor Boström’s ceram­ic sculp­tures. I’ve long been a fan of how she mar­ries form and func­tion. Or, as Eleonor puts she depicts #dogsat­work.
