humpty-dumpty-petaluma-caThere is a new site on the way to Bodega Bay in Petaluma, CA.  A huge Humpty Dumpty sculpture now sits outside of Praetzel’s Fine Furniture & Home Store, sculpted by renowned artists Patrick Amiot and Brigitte Laurent.  “We wanted to put a piece outside our store to remind the community that after 60 years, we are alive and better than ever.  We also wanted to focus on Petaluma’s deep history in farming and eggs.  And what better way to do that than with a local artist.” said store owner and ASID Certified Interior Designer Anne Alderson.

Patrick’s work is among the must-see sites in Sebastopol and now he has created a piece just for Petaluma. The eight foot tall sculpture has not gone unnoticed.  “People are pulling into our parking lot to take photos with Humpty Dumpty and often wander into our store.  We regularly hear “I thought your store was closed.” Says Anne.  But Praetzel’s Home Furniture is far from closed.  With a new remodel and the purchase of this store by Anne Alderson, the store offers current furniture line and  Interior Design while maintaining Praetzel’s promise of 100% American Made Furniture.

About The Sculpture Of Patrick Amiot And Brigitte Laurent:

Objects destined for the dump are integral to the junk-art sculptures created by Patrick Amiot and meticulously painted and brought to life by his wife, Brigitte Laurent.   In the midst of his career upheaval, Amiot started making junk art for fun. He created and installed a giant fisherman made from a water heater in his front yard, and received an unexpected reaction—his neighbors wanted to see more. The rest, as they say, is history. And history plays a big part in the sculptor’s philosophy behind the raw style of his art. For more information, visit
