El Saki Abu

I began sculpting professionally in 1976 and in 1977 I got married. My wedding present was the 1/2 Arabian filly, out of Ed’s Sheba by El Sabre (Ross’zi x Elba) whom I named Bathsheba. Affectionately called “Pumpkin”, this filly went on to win many Championships in halter. She was shown up and down the west coast under the capable guidance of Bruce Howard, including twice Top Ten Canadian National Champion, and US Top Twenty in halter with Greg Knowles. I used Pumpkin as the model for my sculpting business, called Maranatha II, working diligently from life to perfect that talent, but found my medium in clay to be too restrictive.

Bathsheba (Pumpkin)

In the fall of 1979, I set a course in my art career that would become my “Destiny” – I created my first bronze sculpture, aptly entitled, “Destiny”. My model was the black-bay stallion, Aza Destiny, who at the time I sculpted him, was owned by Mr & Mrs Alex Robertson and was standing at stud in Redmond, Oregon. Traveling by bus with a wax model on my lap, I endured the frigid temperatures all the way to Redmond, Oregon to forever change this beautiful stallion into an everlasting art treasure, thus beginning my journey into the world of bronze sculpting.

Debbi LerMond working on National Treasures

In 1983 I unveiled the half life size bronze of Ar-Nett Perlane+ (now owned by Wayne Newton). I had so many people asking me at the shows how bronzes were made, that in 1984, I financed an 11 minute documentary on bronze casting called “The Creation of National Treasures“, produced by Ferman Ansel of Starlight Productions. This video has traveled all over the world, is used in classrooms for teaching purposes and is included in The Museum of Man in Los Angeles.
