    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.

     

    Dimensions
    Metric –  H: 12 W: 9 D: 9 centimetres

    The inspiration behind the sculpture
    This Otter and Cub sculpture is one of my earlier sculptures. I sculpted it after falling in love with otters after doing a commission for the then Young People’s Trust for Endangered Species. I met a wonderful Eurasian Otter named Bea and found the friendly, inquisitive creature absolutely adorable.
    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.

    The Otter and Cub was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. After the otter and cub statue was finished 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.

    Client testimonials
    I want to donate a beautiful trophy to be awarded each year for environmental endeavour. So the dolphin will be mounted as an eye catching trophy- we have a lot of dolphins here in local Guernsey waters so it’s very apt.
