RUNNING WORKING SPANIEL SCULPTURE
“The life-sized Running Working Spaniel sculpture was a commission of Maggie, who had unfortunately passed away when I was asked to sculpt her. Maggie was a really active and gorgeous girl, who spent a lot of time training and playing with her owner. I sculpted her larger than she was in life, which was a disappointment, though I hope her sculpture still has her boundless energy and lovely looks.”
This bronze spaniel statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Running Working 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.

Suitable for outdoor display as a labrador garden ornament or spaniel memorial statue.
If requested this statue can be provided with screw-in threaded rods, which allow you to bolt it onto, or glue it into, hard surfaces. Alternatively, if requested, we can provide fixed (for bronze metal only) or screw in security rings, which will allow you to lock the sculpture to a buried security chain.
This handsome life-sized running working 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 Running Working 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 Running Working Spaniel sculpture is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original clay lab 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 Maggie’s owner to take photos, measurements and videos of some smaller spaniels in her owner’s chosen pose, then proceeded to model ‘Maggie’ larger in clay.
Once I’d sculpted the Running Working Spaniel 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.

Sculpture that is broken in transit to you may be returned, and a replacement sculpture will be sent to you, at no further cost. If no replacement is available, we will cast a new one for you, or offer you a refund.
Flick was disappointed that Maggie’s memorial statue was larger than Maggie was in real life when she was alive, though her final feedback was: “now she is inside I feel totally different. She is bigger but her proportions are perfect, she even nearly fits her old coats so I wonder if it’s more of an illusion than anything else. ”
