The beautiful bronze Standing Greyhound 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.

The inspiration behind the sculpture
This greyhound sculpture is modelled on Malcolm, a retired racing greyhound owned by Printmaker Sue Corke. Sue is the Head of Print at The Art Academy.
Malcolm maintains the extraordinary leg muscles of a racer and has a wonderfully sweet temperament. I’ve often found that greyhound owners are some of the most loyal owners to the breed. I have a lot of admiration for organisations dedicated to finding ex-racers homes, like Forever Hounds Trust. And I hope that the sport will continue its improvements in the welfare of these wonderful animals.
How it 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 Greyhound sculpture was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. After the Standing Greyhound 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.
Absolutely beautiful piece of sculpture, captures the elegance and regality of the greyhound. Very impressed with how well my return was handled and that I received a replacement quickly and professionally without any concern. Would definitely buy from this artist again and would have no hesitation buying or recommending to family and friends.
Magnifique ! Je l’imaginais un peu plus grand mais il est magnifique !
