  • the story

Cool It, Kitty

Garden greens looking a little blue? Is that unruly tangle of a yard making you lose your inner balance? Let Michael Gentilucci's centering sculptures bring peace, humor, and the art of Zen to off-kilter spaces.

These kitties lend stressed-out outdoor spaces a helping paw by adding that necessary dose of tranquility through their calming, yet distinctively feline presence. To add even more cat-like charm, the Chinese characters etched into the back of each kitten's robe are indicative of the animal's primary characteristic—independence. Michael's meditative sealed cement sculptures are designed to weather the elements through the four seasons as they center greenspaces with their amiable auras. Handmade in USA.

  • the maker

Michael Gentilucci

Michael Gentilucci and his wife Alisa share a common passion for traditional garden design. Soon after they met, they created Designer Stone. Since 2004, Michael has created hundreds of original copyrighted clay sculptures. His designs have a spiritual reverberating quality; they are typically amusing, expressive, inspirational, and interactive. They commonly possess a message, often written, sometimes implied, and occasionally profound. It is the type of Garden Art which evokes a glimmering smile, it can remove life's pressures for a few precious moments and can remind us of who we are and what we live for. collection

            Comments about ZEN CAT GARDEN SCULPTURE:

            We received the dog garden sculpture as a gift and love him on our fireplace hearth. When we needed a doorstop, the cat sculpture fit the bill perfectly. It's weighty enough to hold a door open and attractive enough to enjoy it as a sculpture when not in use as the doorstop. The expressions on the faces of these sculptures are wonderful!

              The catalog photo cannot do justice to this charming garden statue. Its air of insouciance is a great addition to our yard. The statue seems very well made and appears as if it will be durable. It came cleverly packaged to forestall damage in shipping. I would certainly recommend the Zen Cat.

                    I bought a large one and a small one. They are very detailed and have a good amount of weight to them. They look nice enough to use in the house too. Excellent gift for any cat lover!

                          I purchased the Zen Dog for my wife and she loved having the adorable character placed in the yard by the pool. After seeing the Zen Cat in the Uncommon Goods catalog, she felt like it was a must have addition so I purchased it for her birthday. She is thrilled to have the relaxing companion add to the calming influence of her Zen Dog.
