LYING ENGLISH BULLDOG SCULPTURE
“This English Bulldog sculpture was modelled on Arthur. It was modelled from life, with Arthur sitting right in front of me at the 2015 Art in Action fair in Oxfordshire. He was an excellent sitter, staying still for a long day while lots of dogs walked by and lots of people came and patted him.
Arthur was a gentle sweetheart with a lot of character in his big friendly face. He was quite old and a bit wobbly, so he had a special parking permit from the organisers.”
This bronze english bulldog statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Lying English Bulldog 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.

The Lying English Bulldog is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original clay english bulldog 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 Arthur 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 Arthur in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Archie 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.
