DORMOUSE SITTING ON STONE SCULPTURE
I modelled this Dormouse sculpture for my first show since getting back into my professional practice. I’d been running The Art Academy for sixteen years and was looking for ways to express what I wanted to do within my own art. So the dormouse sculpture was one of the first in the ‘Charities’ series.
I’m particularly aware of habitat loss for some of our own native animals in the UK. Have a look at the Dormouse Conservation Handbook to find out about nest boxes and managing woods, if you’re interested in learning more about protecting these beautiful creatures.
This bronze Dormouse Sitting on Stone statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the dormouse sculpture will be personally approved and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
10% of the proceeds from this bronze wildlife sculpture support the ‘David Shepherd Wildlife Trust’ animal charity.

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.
Sculpture Description, Bases & Fixings

How The Sculpture Was Made
The Dormouse sculpture was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. After the statue was finished 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.
