Welcome to HotShoe Studios Inc., the official showcase of automotive art and sculpture by Anthony Lauro. While you are here, please be sure to visit the sculpture link to view Anthony’s unique, Ferrari themed automotive sculptures.
The automotive art and sculptures within these pages are hand-crafted with the same revered metal working techniques of legendary coachbuilders. Coachbuilders such as Scaglietti, Vignale, Figoni & Falaschi. Each stunning piece is a bespoke, “one-off” hand-formed aluminum expression of the essence of the automobile. Anthony’s sculptures often feature automotive icons such as Ferrari, Talbot Lago, Delahaye and Bugatti.
Each sculpture is made entirely by hand with traditional coachbuilding tools. It is a tedious, arduous process that takes over one thousand hours per sculpture. It requires painstaking craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail. Every single item on each piece is fabricated from scratch by hand. That includes every little detail right down to the custom formed headlights and bezels. The sculptures are then finished in the same quality, factory paint they receive at the factory. This is then followed by several layers of the finest automotive clear and several hours of machine polishing and hand buffing.
A commissioned automotive sculpture by Anthony Lauro is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the most discerning collector. Anthony’s sculptures hold his personal guarantee that they never be reproduced or recreated thereby ensuring their rarity. In a time of mass produced art, limited editions, and reproduction pieces these sculptures are truly originalworks of art.
