Description

The Sitting Retriever sculpture was modelled on Barney and the standing one was modelled on Pasha. Barney was an old boy when I met him, and the owners had got Pasha as a puppy a few years before. They showed me some fantastic photos of Barney playing with Pasha when Pasha was small. And they still play together really sweetly.

At their sitting I took lots of photographs of Pasha and Barney in a variety of poses. I watched their expressions and mannerisms. I listened to their owners to hear how they behaved at home with their family. After that, with their owners, I decided which pose would suit Pasha and Barney best, then proceeded to model them in wax.

Once I’d sculpted the retrievers a rubber mould was taken. ‘Keys’ were placed in the rubber to ensure proper positioning and a shell of fibreglass was applied. The shell protects the mould and supports it during the casting process.

The Sitting Retriever statue is part of my Charities Range. 10% of the proceeds go to the Dog’s Trust. The charity cares for over 15,000 dogs each year through its network of 20 rehoming centres. It works to ensure that all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.
