Which material to choose?

As this sculpture is handmade the bronze colour may vary.
The beautiful bronze Leaping Spaniel 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.
Foundry Bronze Edition: 225
Bronze Resin Edition: 225
The inspiration behind the sculpture
This sculpture was modelled on Bracken. Bracken belongs to our moulder and casters Robert and Heather at Carter Technical Mouldings and I sculpted him because there had been a great deal of interest in the sitting Cocker Spaniel at Chelsea.
Bracken is a vivacious boy who comes to work with his owners. He loves to greet all their clients, and loves having his ball thrown to him, over and over again!
How it was made
I visited Bracken and took lots of photographs of him in a variety of poses. I watched his expressions and mannerisms, and heard about the way he behaved at home with his family. After that, with his owners, I decided which pose would suit him best, then proceeded to model Bracken in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Bracken 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.
“Thank you so much – the bronze is absolutely beautiful and we are delighted!”
“Hi great to see you today and purchase the fabulous leaping spaniel […] it’s got so much personality!”
[I] “still love it! Anyway, I’d like to purchase a second one for me if you still have one in the edition.”
“Parcel has arrived safely and it is amazing!“
