About the sculptures
All of my horse sculptures are painstakingly hand-made, without molds, and each piece is unique. The sculptures are individually constructed using lightweight clay over a strong and complex armature that allows for delicate details, but provides maximum strength for the sculpture to withstand transport and handling.

The primary materials are non-toxic air drying clays. These clays are museum grade and are selected for their strength and archival properties, to ensure that they can withstand the test of time. Surface decoration often consists of several mediums: acrylics, acrylic gouache, and/or raw powdered pigments. All materials are of the highest artist grade and selected for their lightfastness and superiority.

Each sculpture is finished with a sealer to intensify colours and ensure it is protected from UV rays. 

Only the finest quality materials have been used to produce your sculpture, and proper care will ensure it lasts a lifetime.

 

Sculpture Care

Dust regularly with a clean, soft, dry brush. An artist paint brush is ideal. Do not use water.

For best results, store sculptures at stable room temperature and humidity levels. Avoid placing it on a bright window ledge or in a place that receives a lot of direct sunlight. 

Glass display cases and cabinets are the simplest solution for protecting and displaying fine art sculpture. It's best to use latex/vinyl gloves when handling a sculpture to prevent finger prints being left on it.
