About

Isabel Bloom studied with American master Grant Wood to create art that was simple, affordable and inspired by the world outside her window. Today we carry on her legacy, crafting Bloom sculptures in our Davenport, Iowa studio for home and garden.
Company Overview
Isabel Bloom was an artist and a teacher who taught the world to discover simple beauty in all things. Her life was one of intense creativity and energy.

Now, more than fifty years later, the sculpture of Isabel Bloom continues to warm the hearts and brighten the lives of art lovers and collectors throughout the United States.

Growing up in the Midwest and being a student at the Stone City Art Colony under American Master, Grant Wood, helped to shape Isabel's style. Simple details and rounded features set her sculptures apart from the realistic sculptures of many other artists. The subjects she often chose to depict - children, animals, and mother/child motifs - revealed the things that were important to her.

Isabel admired Victorian era bronze garden sculptures with their rich oxidized patina, and wanted to replicate that surface in a sturdy medium. After months of trying different techniques, Isabel perfected her own method of reproducing her original sculptures in concrete, a basic process that includes mold making, casting, the adding of color, whiting and coating which remains virtually the same today.

The creation of original sculpture for the Isabel Bloom collection rests in the talented hands of designer, Donna Young, Isabel's long time protege who continues to preserve Isabel's unique style and innovative process.
