STANDING HERON SCULPTURE
The Standing Heron was commissioned by a client who saw us exhibiting at RHS Hampton Court Show. She wanted a piece with presence in her garden which would capture the elegance of the grey herons and heron sculptures that she had seen in her lifetime. I also designed it so it would work well situated by water and its larger than life-size height – 1.7 metres (5 1/2 feet) – makes it a standout piece to place beside or amongst plants or reeds.
This bronze Standing Heron statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Heron sculpture will be personally approved and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
10% of the proceeds from this bronze wildlife sculpture support the ‘David Shepherd Wildlife Trust’ 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.

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 impressive Standing Heron statue is sculpted by the artist Tanya Russell, who is well known for her life-like wildlife and animal sculptures. Tanya has a passion for improving the welfare of the animals she sculpts and 10% of all proceeds from the Heron statue will go to the ‘David Shepherd Wildlife Trust’, a charity that fights for greater legal protection of endangered species.
The Standing Heron is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original sculpture, taken from a mould. Your heron sculpture can be cast in Bronze Resin or Foundry Bronze metal depending on which material you prefer.
How The Sculpture Was Made
The Standing Heron sculpture was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. After the Heron 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.
