Which material to choose?
Bronze Resin – bronze metal powder is mixed with a resin to create the appearance of foundry bronze metal, but is more affordable and lightweight.
Foundry Bronze – refers to the poured molten metal that is cast solid or hollow, depending on size, at a bronze foundry (using the traditional lost wax process). It is more robust and will appreciate in value.
Metric – H: 61 W: 72 D: 30 centimetres

As this sculpture is handmade the bronze colour may vary.
The beautiful bronze American Staffordshire Bull Terrier sculpture is a casting of an original sculpture. It is hand cast by a British foundry or resin caster and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. This is an original foundry or resin casting of the sculptor’s work that she has personally approved.
This casting is a perfect recreation of the original sculpture and bears the artist’s signature and its own unique edition number.

The inspiration behind the sculpture
The American Staffordshire Bull Terrier sculpture is a commission of Winston Woofbark, who is know fondly by his family as having been the best staffie in the world! Winton’s pose was chosen from his owners’ wedding photos, in which he played a central role due to his handsomeness and big heart. He lived on the island of Jersey near the United Kingdom, where he enjoyed a long happy life with his family. Not bad for a rescue staffie from Battersea Cats and Dogs home! I hope all our precious rescues and strays will be so lucky. Winston’s sculpture will be placed on the spot where his ashes are buried, to commemorate a very good boy.
How it was made
I wasn’t able to visit Winston before he passed, but I was sent plenty of photos of him in a variety of poses. With his owners, I decided which pose would suit him best, then proceeded to model Winston in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Winston a rubber mould was taken, with ‘keys’ placed in the rubber to ensure proper positioning. Then a shell of fibreglass was applied, to protect the mould and support it during the casting process.
This sculpture is new and we don’t yet have written feedback for it.
