Isabel Bloom is Blooming all over Davenport, Iowa!

The blog post, You Know You're From The Quad Cities When..., was posted back in February and stirred some laughter, some comments, some emotion (good memories), and some questions.  This post is about answering one of the questions.  The question is, why would someone stand in line for over an hour to buy "sculpted concrete"?

So, after some prodding by Mike, I decided to finally write about Davenport, Iowa's Famous Isabel Bloom!

Isabel Bloom - Flowers by Lucky Lang Davenport Iowa Real Estate

Davenport, Iowa is home to the Isabel Bloom legacy!  Click Here to learn more about the history of Isabel Bloom.  The pieces above are called "Flower Picks".

Isabel Bloom - Girl with Birds by Lucky Lang Davenport Iowa Real Estate

These pieces of art are sculpted, forms are made, concrete is cast, and then they are all individually hand painted.

Isabel Bloom - Friends by Lucky Lang Davenport Iowa Real Estate 

This one is one of the tiniest they make and it weighs only a few ounces.

The bottom of each of them (even this tiny one) are signed and dated.

Isabel Bloom - Garden Angel by Lucky Lang Davenport Iowa Real Estate

This is one of the largest sculptures called Garden Angel and weighes in at 60 pounds!

This is just one more reason why Davenport, Iowa has Quality of Life and is a Great Place to Live!

There you go, Mike!

Enjoy!

Lucky,

THANKS!!  I particularly like that third one from the top; it reminds me of some of the indian sculptures here in Tucson.  (thanks for the link, too!)
