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.
Metric – H: 28 W: 59 D: 25 centimetres
Imperial – H: 11 W: 23 D: 10 inches

As this sculpture is handmade the bronze colour may vary.
The beautiful bronze Lying Jack Russell Terrier 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.
Bronze Resin Edition: 25
The inspiration behind the sculpture
The Lying Jack Russell Terrier sculpture was a commission of Jasper, who had unfortunately passed on before I had the chance to meet him. The Jasper sculpture was to be a surprise for his owner, and now sits by the fire place in his family’s home.
How it was made
When I model animals I try where possible to find examples from life. I also use many photos – often hundreds – showing the animal (and other animals of the breed or species). This helps me sculpt their anatomical features. I study the way that hair, fur or skin lies over their muscles or alters their shape, and their different poses and attitudes.
Once I’d sculpted Jasper 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 have just received our fantastic sculpture of Jasper. We are quite delighted, you have achieved an uncanny likeness, it brought tears to our eyes. You are very clever, thank you so much. At the moment he is by our fireplace where he always slept, but maybe when the garden opens next Spring we will put him out so visitors can see him. It was the most wonderful surprise for us, and we love it.”
Miranda and Paul, (Owners)
