As this sculpture is handmade the bronze colour may vary.
The beautiful bronze English Setter 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
I never had the privilege of meeting Archie. I heard that he went everywhere with the family and was particularly good with the children. Archie loved his birthday celebrations and was a gentle giant who is much missed.
English Setters have a wonderful shape and beautiful coat. I chose this pose with the owner for its elegance and poise. We selected an old photo memory of Archie walking through water, which captured his gentle, beautiful presence.
How it was made
I sculpted Archie using a large number of photographs sent from his owner in London. They kindly showed me what they loved about their handsome boy, and took some measurements for me. After that, with his owners, I decided which pose would suit Archie best, then proceeded to model him in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Archie 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.
“Maggie is absolutely thrilled. Magda, my administrator loves him in her office and talks to him all the time as she used to with Archie who she adored. Phil saw him last weekend and is absolutely thrilled.“
