Koko may be the most famous Western Lowland Gorilla. She was born and grew up in captivity, learning to use sign language to communicate with those around her. Koko taught us that animals do indeed feel emotions, when she expressed love and sadness after learning her pet cat had died, and later overhearing discussion of Fred Rogers’ death.


Painted using vitreous enamels. Each layer is fired in the kiln prior to the painting of the next layer. The base glass is salvaged glass that came from old store shelving. Pâte de Verre leaves decorate the surface.

Permanently mounted to a professional birch and pine cradle board and wired for easy hanging.  The cradle board has been painted black and sealed with micro-crystalline wax.
