Lying Hare Sculpture

I meant to put this picture up last week, somehow the time just passed too quickly. The client is coming to collect the hare commission next week so I thought I ought to at least put up one more picture today.
Lying hare sculpture - bronze glaze- mounted on a marble base

It has worked very well and will be a contrast to the othet Crouching Hare.  Photographing sculpture is always difficult.  Did this in the garden but took it in a shady place. Took out some of the background but I am not very expert at this. Still it does show the piece before it goes.

Have a look at my web site if you are interested in my hare sculptures

Completed commission - Garden Hares

Another finished commission now finished. This was a great commission for 4 hares to go into a garden. Just the type of sculpture I enjoy doing. Working out how four sculptures could work together in one garden was a good challenge. Just mounted the first one onto it's base. I always think this sets them off and at the same time makes them stable in a garden. I use a heavy piece of polishes marble; it works a treat !

This is a crouching hare based on a painting owned by the client.

Back to work now to mount up the other sculptures. Will put pictures up here as soon as possible.

New Animal Sculptures

Quite a lot to write about as I have come to the end of two animal sculpture commissions. It's always a time of mixed feelings as the work has been so enjoyable and now is over. I guess its the pleasure of actually making that keeps me going ! It is good to be paid for something I enjoy doing as well ! Have to be realistic I guess.

The Cockerel finally finished and patinated ! Cast by Pangolin Editions who are considered to be the best casters in Europe, if not worldwide. It has been a pleasure to work with them on this commission. Do check out their web site to see how it is done.

This is the first of an edition of 12. For more information visit my web site

I have also finished a commission for four garden hares. These were made in ceramic and finished in a bronze glaze. It works very well but of course is not real foundry bronze.

Here they are -
This is a picture taken in the studio after firing. They have all now been finished and mounted onto bases. Busy today but will get the pictures of this finished commission up later this month.
