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: 140 W: 28 D: 74 centimetres

As this sculpture is handmade the bronze colour may vary.

The beautiful bronze Walking Crane 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.

The inspiration behind the sculpture

The Walking Crane sculpture was a private commission and is one of my earlier artworks. It was designed to be situated by water and its height makes it a nice piece to place beside or amongst plants or reeds.

How it was made

In this case, I researched lots of source material, working from lots of photographs of cranes in a variety of poses and modelling it in clay. The Walking Crane sculpture was modelled in clay, over a steel and aluminium armature for support.

Once I’d sculpted the crane statue 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.
