Most of my animal sculptures were made early in my career. This quote from John Ruskin in 1852 explains: There is a strong instinct in me, which I cannot analyse, to draw and describe things I love - not for reputation, nor for the good of others....but a sort of instinct like that of eating or drinking.
I was brought up on a farm which had most domesticated animals (and access to wild ones) and they were my first loves. I modelled them and people liked them so I drifted into selling at agricultural shows and made many trophies of the champions. However my interests and ideas moved on and I have very few, sometimes only one, left. I could produce more and recently I have formed a contact with a remarkable foundry in Athens V&P TASSIS, firstname.lastname@example.org which produces bronzes of a very high standard and equally remarkable low prices. I need to order 6 to make this viable. I have done this recently with a Wensleydale Sheep owner who found five others who wanted this rare model and now the proud owners now each have a fine bronze for a very modest price.
