“The Walking St Bernard sculpture is based on Ellie. Ellie is a smooth-haired, gentle girl who was very beautiful and surprisingly camera-shy! She was extremely loyal to her family, and hugely enjoyed running around the garden.
Ellie was commissioned along with her companion, a Newfoundland named Monty and with a young girl named Kirsty. The intention was to have Kirsty sitting on a bench between the two dogs, on a low hill above the house.”

This bronze st bernard statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Walking St Bernard sculpture will be personally approved and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

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.

The Walking St Bernard is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original clay newfoundland sculpture, taken from a mould. Your bronze dog sculpture can be cast in Bronze Resin or Foundry Bronze metal depending on which material you prefer.

How The Sculpture Was Made

I visited Ellie 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 Ellie in clay.

Once I’d sculpted Ellie 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.
