Mary Engel makes wonderful animal sculptures that are embellished with found objects. The Kamm Collection is pleased to have two of her works modeled after dogs: Lucky is surfaced in dice and Watch Dog is covered in watches. The latter was commissioned by Sonny and Gloria Kamm. Lucky has an opening in its nose (spout), and its tucked tail forms a handle.
