Pete Zaluzec is active/lives in Illinois. Pete Zaluzec is known for sculptor-wildlife.
As a licensed falconer, Pete brings to his work a first hand understanding of his "subjects". A degree in fine arts from The Art Institute of Chicago along with a life long fascination for birds adds to the style in his pieces. Since he began carving in 1986, all of his work has been dominated by birds. Pete was awarded "Best in World" for an unprecedented three consecutive years in decorative miniature wood carving from the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art's World Championship Wildfowl Carving Competition. His work has also been selected for exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Birds in Art Show.
His pieces have evolved from more intricately painted pieces to naturally finished pieces in cherry or walnut to the simplicity of bronze sculptures.
