STANDING CAT SCULPTURE

The Standing Cat sculpture was modelled on Jack, a beautiful, wonderfully characterful British Blue cat. He was commissioned in Foundry Bronze, and will be joined by the life-sized Sitting Cat, modelled on his companion.

Cats are surprisingly difficult to sculpt when you aren’t intending to create a stylistically smooth, round shape. Their musculature and anatomy are often lost in large areas underneath their slinky fur. I very much enjoyed creating the heavy darks of his striped coat.

This bronze cat statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Standing Cat sculpture will be personally approved and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

10% of the proceeds from this bronze animal sculpture support the All Creatures Great and Small 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.

Sculpture Description, Bases & Fixings

Suitable for outdoor display as a cat garden ornament or cat memorial statue.

If requested this statue can be provided with screw-in threaded rods, which allow you to bolt it onto, or glue it into, hard surfaces. Alternatively, if requested, we can provide fixed (for bronze metal only) or screw in security rings, which will allow you to lock the sculpture to a buried security chain.

This three-quarter-lifesized cat statue is sculpted by the artist Tanya Russell, who is well known for her life-like animal sculptures. Tanya has a passion for improving the welfare of the animals she sculpts and 10% of all proceeds from the Standing Cat statue will go to ‘All Creatures Great and Small’, a charity that provides sanctuary and rehoming services for domestic animals rescued in England and Wales.

The Standing Cat is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original clay cat sculpture, taken from a mould. Your bronze cat sculpture can be cast in Bronze Resin or Foundry Bronze metal depending on which material you prefer.

How The Sculpture Was Made

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

The Standing Cat sculpture was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. After the Standing Cat statue was finished 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.

Delivery costs are calculated once you add a sculpture to your bag. Contact us for other delivery options like collection or express delivery for bulky sculptures.

International delivery is available.

If you are an international buyer, you may need to pay local customs duties or taxes when importing a sculpture into your country. This most often applies to more valuable sculptures. Your local customs and taxes are not prepaid for you. If you contact us we can try to estimate them for you.

Sculpture that is broken in transit to you may be returned, and a replacement sculpture will be sent to you, at no further cost. If no replacement is available, we will cast a new one for you, or offer you a refund.
