FLYING OWL SCULPTURE
This Flying Owl sculpture was commissioned for Beth’s Memorial Garden in Oregon. Beth loved owls, and I wanted to created a special movement and dynamism in this statue to capture people’s experiences of these beautiful birds in flight. She liked them for their heart-shaped faces, and the way their activities could be observed at night, as she stayed up very late. The post is modelled in swooping curved shape, to emphasize the natural shapes of the owls wings as it manoeuvres, creating a lovely outline from all around the owl statue. The owl will be placed in the ‘California room’ of Beth’s memorial garden.
This bronze Flying Owl statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Owl 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
Suitable for outdoor display as a garden or park ornament.
If you intend to place this statue on soft ground it will be provided with a subframe, which can be buried to give it security and stability. If you wish to place it on concrete or patio slabs, it has a steel baseplate that can be bolted into hard standing.
This dynamic Flying Owl statue is sculpted by the artist Tanya Russell, who is well known for her life-like wildlife and animal sculptures. Tanya has a passion for improving the welfare of the animals she sculpts and 10% of all proceeds from the Flying Owl statue will go to the ‘David Shepherd Wildlife Trust’, a charity that fights for greater legal protection of endangered species.
The Flying Owl is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original sculpture, taken from a mould. Your owl sculpture can be cast in Bronze Resin or Foundry Bronze metal depending on which material you prefer.
How The Sculpture Was Made
The Flying Owl sculpture was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. After the owl 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.
