As this sculpture is handmade the bronze colour may vary.
The beautiful bronze Lying Tibetan 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
This sculpture was modelled on a Tibetan Terrier named Cody, and was one of my commissions auctioned by Battersea Dogs and Cats home to raise money for the charity.
Cody was attentive and enjoyed his treats, and the main challenge was his long hair, so I chose a pose with the owner that showed off his lovely face. Having taken lots of measurements and photos I modelled him in a lying position, with his head tilted up a little to look at the viewer.
How it was made
I visited Cody 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 Cody in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Cody 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.
“Charles it has arrived and we are so pleased with it, it captures his spirit perfectly so much so it was like be reunited with his presence, thank you so much it’s perfect.”
“Just wanted to say that our TT sculpture has safely arrived, We are absolutely delighted with him!!!”
“The sculpture has arrived safely – we finally got the opportunity to unpack it today and it looks great on our patio.”
