Which material to choose?
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.

As this sculpture is handmade the bronze colour may vary.
The beautiful bronze Wagging Golden Retriever 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 is an original foundry or resin casting of the sculptor’s work that she has personally approved.
This casting is a perfect recreation of the original sculpture and bears the artist’s signature and its own unique edition number.
Bronze Resin Edition: 25
The inspiration behind the sculpture
This Golden Retriever sculpture was modelled on a beautiful and friendly retriever named Daisy. Daisy was commissioned in 2016 along with her companion Blossom, a Maltese Terrier.
Daisy was a gentle girl, with a beautiful face and very expressive eyebrows! She was originally cast in foundry bronze.
How it was made
I visited Daisy and took lots of photographs of her in a variety of poses. I watched her expressions and mannerisms, and heard about the way she behaved at home with her family. After that, with her owners, I decided which pose would suit her best, then proceeded to model Daisy in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Daisy 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.
