The inspiration behind the sculpture
The Vizsla sculpture was modelled on Lola. Lola was a young Hungarian Vizsla. She was very shy and quiet, until you got her game toy out. She was trained to retrieve and she was very excited by her fluffy duck. I got some wonderful photos of her having it thrown around during her sitting with me.
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 Vizsla sculpture was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. After the Standing Vizsla 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.
