The inspiration behind the sculpture
Siegfriedje the King Charles Cavalier is owned by Belgian family, who commissioned their beautiful boy after seeing the sculptures of Norah and Martha on my website. He is a smiley, happy dog, and together with his owner I chose a classic sitting pose to take advantage of his excellent sculptural qualities.
His owner was keen to see the progress of the clay at each stage, and I found the most challenging part the work on Siegfriedje’s face, which needed attentiveness, but also a softness in the halo of fur around his head.
How it was made
I sculpted Siegfriedje’s using a large number of photographs sent from his owner in Belgium. They kindly showed me what they loved about their handsome boy, and took some measurements for me. After that, with his owners, I decided which pose would suit Siegfriedje best, then proceeded to model him in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Siegfriedje 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.
