    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.

    The inspiration behind the sculpture

    The Family of Pigs sculptures were not actually my idea at all. My husband Charles comes from Suffolk, a pig county, and was very keen that I model a family of pigs. When we started showing artwork at large County Fairs like Countryfile Live, I thought the idea would be a hit. They were originally cast in four colours – bronze, iron, marble and verdigris. They were also among the first Charities range sculptures to be cast in foundry bronze for the first time.

    I enjoyed creating three pig sculptures which related to one another. Though happily, I think each one works on its own as well.

    How it was made

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

    The Family of Pigs sculpture was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. After the Family of Pigs 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.
