As this sculpture is handmade the bronze colour may vary.
The beautiful bronze Cockerpoo 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
Leo the Cockerpoo was a bouncy boy who enjoyed walking in the lovely woods and green fields around his home.
His owner was keen to have a standing pose and I accompanied them on a walk to watch Leo’s movements and temperament. I took lots of photographs while we were out and had the opportunity to catch him as he paused to look at something that had caught his interest.
One challenge with this breed is the length of coat. As with many dogs that are clipped, choosing the ‘haircut’ makes a huge difference to the look and feel of the final sculpture.
How it was made
I visited Leo 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 Leo in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Leo 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.
“Just to let you know Leo arrived safely and looks fantastic ! Really pleased with the final result.“
