LEAPING SPANIEL SCULPTURE
“This spaniel sculpture was modelled on Bracken. Bracken belongs to our moulder and casters Robert and Heather at Carter Technical Mouldings and I sculpted him as I just love the energy and character of spaniels.
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!”
This bronze spaniel statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Leaping Spaniel sculpture will be personally approved and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
10% of the proceeds from this bronze dog sculpture support ‘The Dogs 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.

This windowsill-sized spaniel statue is sculpted by the artist Tanya Russell, who is the UK’s pre-eminent dog sculptor. Tanya has a passion for improving the welfare of the animals she sculpts and 10% of all proceeds from the Leaping Spaniel statue will go to the ‘Dogs Trust’, a charity that provides sanctuary and rehoming services for dogs in the UK and also lobbies for welfare policy changes all over the world.
The Leaping Spaniel is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original wax spaniel sculpture, taken from a mould. Your bronze dog sculpture can be cast in Bronze Resin or Foundry Bronze metal depending on which material you prefer.
How The Sculpture 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.
