Description

I decided to do a sitting hare sculpture (finally!) after doing RHS shows for three years. I’d listened to all the lovely feedback from visitors and clients and they kept asking for hares. It’s a difficult sculpture to do – so many have been sculpted before. I wanted to strike the right balance with my own style, and the iconic shape of this beautiful creature. While I would love to sculpt a boxing hare, I wanted to begin with something simple and elegant. I wanted it to capture the hare in a moment of stillness, yet show its sharp awareness and potential for movement.

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 or fur lies over their muscles or alters their shape, and their different poses and attitudes.

– Your sitting hare sculpture raises money for rescued farm animals –

The Sitting Hare sculpture is part of my Charities Range, and 10% of the proceeds go to the All Creatures Great & Small animal sanctuary. The sanctuary is based in Wales. It operates a programme of rehabilitation and re-homing of injured, abused, unwanted and orphaned farm animals and pets.

If you would like to commission a hare sculpture or a another animal statue, I have some information about bespoke sculptures and pricing on my commissions page.
