The inspiration behind the sculpture
The small Standing Labrador sculpture wasn’t a commission, but was done for myself. Or more accurately, I’d had a lot of lovely visitors ask for a smaller labrador when they visited me at our shows. I try to listen to what people would like to see. And I admit a smaller labrador was quite a gap in my portfolio of dogs!
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 Labrador sculpture was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. After the Standing Labrador 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.

Commissioning a bespoke dog sculpture
