Schlatter's iconic animal sculptures are carved and chiseled from a plaster/cement mix called hydrocal. The core armature is welded rebar mounted on a multilayered plywood plinth. The works are painted with acrylic and acrylic mediums as well as clear and sometimes tinted resin. The surface is an interchange of glossy smooth and matte, deeply grooved areas.
