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.
Metric – H: 79 W: 50 D: 16 centimetres

The beautiful bronze ‘Stargazers’ Figure and Dog 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 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
I sculpted the ‘Stargazers’ figure and dog on ring sculpture for my new Relationships range. I’m exploring my style, introducing more abstraction to my marks and composition. The intention is to simplify and emphasise the relationship between human and animal. In this case, the oneness of a shared moment is the primary theme of ‘’Stargazers’.
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 ‘Stargazers’ Figure and Dog sculpture was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. After the ‘Stargazers’ Figure and Dog 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.
“Thank you so much for the beautiful bronze – we absolutely love it. Today is the first anniversary and it’s so fitting to have it in place, with some “Nicholas” dahlias as well. Lots of compliments about our new beautiful piece.”
“I love it.”…”you are the best. Many many thanks..With all the sadness in the world, this sculpture will lighten my heart.”
