The Jim Shore Collection

The enormous popularity of award-winning artist Jim Shore is the result of a lifetime of dedication, inspiration and plain old hard work. And as with most successful people,some good fortune has played a part as well. As Jim puts it, "Art is something I've done all my life. It's what I've always loved and the only thing I ever wanted to do. But making a living as an artist isn't easy. There are thousands of very talented people out there that never get a chance to show what they can do. I've been lucky. Not only do I get to do what I love, I get to share it with people around the world. I've been given a tremendous gift and I thank God for it every day."

How Jim Shore's Pieces are Made

Due to Jim's busy schedule, it's no longer possible for him to sculpt every item. Now he provides a detailed drawing of a new piece to a group of master sculptors, handpicked and trained by Jim over the course of many years. These artisans then produce clay molds that are sent to Jim for approvals to ensure they are faithful representations of Jim's original art. Often these prototypes are revised several times until they are just right, down to the last detail and texture. Molds are made from these original sculptures and products are cast in POLYresin. Each piece is then painstakingly hand-painted and finished by artists using folk art techniques developed by Jim. Jim's attention to detail and involvement in the entire process ensure products with the look and feel of real wood and have a quality and level of detail that is unique in the industry.
