Animal Vegetable Mineral
Award-winning designer Lisa Schallert has lived and worked in Philadelphia since the early 1970's. Her interest in "beasts, bugs and botany" developed as a teenage volunteer working behind the scenes at the Smithsonian Institution. She discovered sculpture and metalworking while attending the Phila. College of Art, and later formed her own company, Animal Vegetable Mineral. Her natural history background is very evident in her designs featuring detailed and life-like animal and botanical images.
