As this sculpture is handmade the bronze colour may vary.
The beautiful bronze Sitting Labradoodle sculpture is a casting of an original sculpture. It is hand cast by a British foundry or resin caster and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. This is an original foundry or resin casting of the sculptor’s work that she has personally approved.
This casting is a perfect recreation of the original sculpture and bears the artist’s signature and its own unique edition number.

The inspiration behind the sculpture
Harry is a an old boy who is getting stiff in his back legs but still loves to follow you around and be part of the fun. Harry actually struggled to sit at all when I visited him, but in all other respects he was a star sitter. He was patient with my photos and measurements and waggy at all times! He wasn’t even phased when his sculpture turned up at his home, preferring to enjoy our company and wander into our videos whenever he saw the opportunity.
How it was made
I visited Harry and took lots of photographs of him in a variety of poses. I watched his expressions and mannerisms, and heard about the way he behaved at home with his family. After that, with his owners, I decided which pose would suit him best, then proceeded to model Harry in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Harry 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.
Hi Tanya have now seen the sculpture and it is truly fabulous! We are both absolutely delighted with it!
