Sculpture intro 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, the way that their feathers lie over their muscles, and their different poses and attitudes.

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.

As this sculpture is handmade the bronze colour may vary.

The beautiful bronze Standing Red Deer Stag 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

This Standing Red Deer Stag sculpture was modelled on a royal stag, and inspiration was drawn from various stags that I researched.

It was commissioned in 2018 by a client for a beautiful spot under a willow tree. I wanted to capture the grace and power of the animal, which had stuck in my head since seeing three males in a deer park in Norfolk. The stag is poised and alert, but confident in its own strength.

How it was made

I used lots of photographs of stags in a variety of poses, selecting my favourite pose and agreeing it with the commissioners. Then I proceeded to model their royal stag in clay.

Once I’d sculpted the stag, 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.
