About Nature by Klaus

Where it began...

Nature by Klaus has a storied history that began over three decades ago when artist and whitetail enthusiast Klaus Lebrecht’s passion for the outdoors led him to the taxidermy industry, where antler and nature reproductions were in their infancy. He paid a fellow to teach him how to make antler replicas by casting a mold of real antlers then pouring liquid plastic into the mold.

Klaus spent years perfecting this craft, eventually landing on polyurethane plastic, which helped him achieve a hyper-realistic look. He began selling his reproductions to taxidermists, archery shops, corporate businesses and individuals. Soon clients came in droves for his lifelike antler reproductions, including Cabela’s, Bass Pro Shops, the NRA and the National Turkey Federation.

Where it went...

New inspirations soon filled Klaus. He began using the same proprietary process he developed for antler productions to create hyper-realistic nature replicas and displays and launched a new business—Nature by Klaus. He also discovered a passion in the need for premium quality, exceptional blanks and display elements for the fish reproduction industry and started Waters by Klaus.

Today, outdoor enthusiasts, retailers, nature centers, museums, resorts and theme parks hire him for his artistic skill and team of exceptional craftsman. The businesses he runs with his wife Nola have grown and become known for putting quality over quantity, using the highest-grade materials and being committed to unparalleled realism in every reproduction.
