WIGGLING SPANIEL SCULPTURE
“The Wiggling Spaniel sculpture is based on Millie, a lovely cocker spaniel owned by a gentleman who commissioned the sculpture as a surprise gift for his wife. The spaniel sculpture was shown by arrangement at Chelsea Flower Show, where the lady first saw it and being very moved by it, brought the lady quite to tears.
I was extremely happy to have been able to bring joy to Millie’s lovely family, and I particularly enjoyed sculpting such a natural, wonderful pose.”
This bronze spaniel statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Wiggling Spaniel sculpture will be personally approved and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
10% of the proceeds from this bronze dog sculpture support ‘The Dogs Trust’ animal charity.

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.
Sculpture Description, Bases & Fixings
Suitable for outdoor display as a spaniel garden ornament or paniel memorial statue.
If requested this statue can be provided with screw-in threaded rods, which allow you to bolt it onto, or glue it into, hard surfaces. Alternatively, if requested, we can provide fixed (for bronze metal only) or screw in security rings, which will allow you to lock the sculpture to a buried security chain.
This cuddly lifesized spaniel statue is sculpted by the artist Tanya Russell, who is the UK’s pre-eminent dog sculptor. Tanya has a passion for improving the welfare of the animals she sculpts and 10% of all proceeds from the Wiggling Spaniel statue will go to the ‘Dogs Trust’, a charity that provides sanctuary and rehoming services for dogs in the UK and also lobbies for welfare policy changes all over the world.
The Wiggling Spaniel is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original clay spaniel 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 Millie 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 Millie in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Millie 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.
