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: 77 W: 60 D: 16 centimetres

The inspiration behind the sculpture
The ‘Trust’ Woman and Fawn sculpture was the fourth sculpture in my animal-human relationships series. This time I wanted to try two figures the figure and the fawn, interacting with each other with curiosity, friendliness, and trust.
I feel our interactions with the animal world are so often to do with commercial use or resource accumulation and I wanted to depict a relationship that felt purer. This piece is meant to evoke a sense of innocence, which feel we are very close to losing entirely in many parts of the world. But the more we can protect our wild places, our parks and woods, along with the creatures that live in them, the more we’ll be able to enjoy those things. If we can establish a healthier relationship with the animals we share our world with, perhaps we can grow in it alongside one another, and learn a different way forward together.
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 ‘Trust’ Woman and Fawn sculpture was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. After the ‘Trust’ Woman and Fawn 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.
This sculpture is new and we don’t have any testimonial for it yet.
