STANDING YORKSHIRE TERRIER SCULPTURE
“The Standing Yorkshire Terrier sculpture was modelled on Charlie. Charlie was quite elderly when I met him, but was still sweet and spritely and enjoying the comfort of his wonderful home.
Charlie was commissioned with his companion Ben as a pair, though unfortunately, I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Ben as sadly he’d passed away.”
This bronze yorkie statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Lying Yorkshire Terrier sculpture will be personally approved and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
10% of the proceeds from this bronze dog sculpture support ‘The Dogs Trust’ animal charity.

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.
Sculpture Description, Bases & Fixings
Suitable for outdoor display as a yorkshire terrier garden ornament or yorkshire terrier memorial statue.
This statue is provided with screw-in threaded rods for added stability in soft ground, which also allow you to bolt it onto, or glue it into, hard surfaces. Alternatively, if requested, we can provide fixed or screw in security rings, which will allow you to lock the sculpture to a buried security chain.
This alert lifesized yorkshire terrier statue is sculpted by the artist Tanya Russell, who is the UK’s pre-eminent dog sculptor. Tanya has a passion for improving the welfare of the animals she sculpts and 10% of all proceeds from the Standing Yorkshire Terrier statue will go to the ‘Dogs Trust’, a charity that provides sanctuary and rehoming services for dogs in the UK and also lobbies for welfare policy changes all over the world.
The Standing Yorkshire Terrier is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original clay yorkshire terrier sculpture, taken from a mould. Your bronze dog sculpture can be cast in Bronze Resin or Foundry Bronze metal depending on which material you prefer.
How The Sculpture Was Made
I visited Charlie and took lots of photographs of him in a variety of poses. I watched his expressions and mannerisms, and heard about the way he behaved at home with his family. After that, with his owners, I decided which pose would suit him best, then proceeded to model Charlie in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Charlie 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.
