In bronze, I sculpt stories of beauty and inspiration. Using the ancient lost wax method, I cast, forge and weld each piece, crafting narratives that uplift and celebrate the human spirit.

About Lori Betz

I studied studio art and design at the University of Texas, Austin. I was then awarded an artist’s residency at the Shigaraki Cultural Institute, in Shigaraki, Japan. After I completed my residency, I sought out instructors to study with and this led me to apprentice with artist Alan Bain in Procopia, Greece and then on to study sculpture with artist Alex Deya in Cortona, Italy, and portraiture with renown portrait artist, Philippe Faraut in New York. I have experience in all types of mold-making and casting, having worked in a sculpture foundry for two years and then opening up my own sculpture foundry for the past ten years, Betz Art Foundry. I have successfully completed a range of private and commercial commissions. I teach portraiture and figurative sculpture at the Glade Arts Foundation and the principals of casting and sculpture at the Betz Art Foundry. I am currently on the board of the Texas Sculpture Society.
