SITTING CAVALIER KING CHARLES SPANIEL SCULPTURE
“Siegfriedje the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is owned by a Belgian family, who commissioned this statue of 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 work on Siegfriedje’s face the most challenging part, which needed attentiveness, but also a softness in the halo of fur around his head.”
This bronze cavalier king charles spaniel statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Sitting Cavalier King Charles 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.

The Sitting Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original clay Cavalier King Charles Spaniel 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 sculpted Siegfriedje 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.
