Description

I modelled the Baby Turtle sculptures to highlight the struggle of endangered marine species. I’m very concerned by the degrading quality of the water in our oceans and by the overhunting of several amazing species. I believe art can help people think about why these precious animals should be protected.

It was a pleasure to be able to sculpt something for the ‘Charities’ range that was actually life-sized. Another first for me was sculpting something that wasn’t a commission, which was intended to work individually or as a pair. It later encouraged me to sculpt my family of pigs.

When I model animals I try where possible to find examples from life. I also use many, many photos showing the animal (and other animals of the breed or species). This helps me sculpt their anatomical features. I study the way that muscles and skin features interact or alter their shape, and their different poses and attitudes.

– Your baby turtle sculptures raise money for wildlife conservation –

The Baby Turtle statues are part of my Charities Range, and 10% of the proceeds go to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. The wildlife conservation charity particularly focuses on Africa and Asia. It fights wildlife crime and protects natural areas. It also engages local communities in finding long-term, sustainable solutions to protect their native wildlife.

If you would like to commission a fawn sculpture or a another animal statue, I have some information about bespoke sculptures and pricing on my commissions page.

Suitable for indoor display and sized for the window-sill or mantlepiece. The Baby Turtle sculptures are the perfect animal sculpture gift for a special occasion.
