Biography Gladys Caldwell
Born in Loveland, Colorado, Gladys Fisher settled in Denver with her family when she was age eleven, and from there established herself as a well-known sculptress, especially of animal subjects although she did portrait busts as well.
She preferred working in hard stone and hard woods, and spent much time observing animals in their natural habitat. Two of her Rocky Mountain sheep sculptures, installed in 1936 at the main Denver post office, each weighted ten tons and were carved from limestone. These sculptures were the result of her winning a federal competition to produce sculpture decorations for the Denver Post Office, and to get started with the commission, she spent time in Yellowstone observing sheep in their natural habitat.
