Description

The Standing Retriever sculpture was modelled on Pasha, and the sitting one was modelled on Barney. Barney was an old boy when I met him. The owners had got Pasha as a puppy a few years before. They should me some fantastic photos of Barney playing with Pasha when Pasha was small, and they still play together really sweetly.

At their sitting I took lots of photographs of Pasha and Barney in a variety of poses, watching their expressions and mannerisms, and hearing about the way they behaved at home with their family. After that, with their owners, I decided which pose would suit Pasha and Barney best. Then I proceeded to model them in wax.

Once I’d sculpted the retrievers 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.

– Your standing retriever sculpture raises money for dogs in need –

The Standing Retriever statue is part of my Charities Range. 10% of the proceeds go to the Dog’s Trust. The charity cares for over 15,000 dogs each year through its network of 20 rehoming centres. It works to ensure that all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.

If you would like to commission a Standing Retriever sculpture, and want to ask a question about a sculpture of your own dog, I have some information about bespoke sculptures and pricing on my commissions page.
