Which material to choose?
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 beautiful bronze Leaping Bearded Collie 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
His owners showed their beautiful Bearded Collies, so I not only had photos of him to work from, but also had the pleasure of having his companion model for me so I could take lots of measurements.
The challenge with Keefa was in preserving a sense of dynamic play while sculpting his long hair. But consequently it feels like he’s really leaping for a ball in the sculpture, and I hope his sculpture continues to give his owners happy memories of him long into the future.
Keefa was originally cast in foundry bronze, and his memorial now plays beside a beautiful pond.
How it was made
Once I’d sculpted Keefa 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.
“We are now sitting with a glass of wine admiring our sculpture Keefa in situ in the garden by the magnolia tree he looks so beautiful (will send you some photos)”
