The inspiration behind the sculpture
This Standing Cavalier King Charles Spaniel sculpture was modelled on Martha, an alert and energetic younger spaniel, who enjoyed chasing balls.
Martha was commissioned in 2016 along with her companion Nora, also a King Charles. I wanted to show Martha’s youthful lines and wonderful breeding with a classic standing pose. She stands next to Norah, contrasting with Norah’s softer lying pose with her own alert watchfulness.
How it was made
I visited Martha and took lots of photographs of her alone and with Norah, in a variety of poses. I watched her expressions and mannerisms, and heard about the way she behaved at home with her family. After that, with her owners, I decided which pose would suit her best, then proceeded to model Martha in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Martha 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.
