One of the artists hired by Rookwood is Louise Abel who has done some lovely bits of sculpturing (Illustration IV). She told me of a number of interesting studies at the Cincinnati Zoo where she has for some years been in the habit of sketching and modeling the animals. To her the latter are almost human, each with an individuality of its own. No two act or react alike. She has more than once sat for hours looking ahead to one of her subjects to get into a position appropriate for modeling. Among these was a polar bear who gave the impression to sense his significance and posed daily in an analogous spot. Miss Abel comprehensive modeling him but a year later she back and commenced constructing her modeling stand. Thereupon an analogous bear automatically assumed his pose. Maybe bears, like elephants, always remember. The mat glazes were made at Rookwood in 1896 and instead of refracting light, admit a slight penetration. They can be utilized in large masses with out annoying the forms or color schemes as glassy reflections do.
