À Terre II - original clay horse hoof sculpture - Susie Benes

À Terre II

2016
33cm tall (13in) including base
Wire, clay, acrylic, wood


Part of a growing series exploring the ballet of the equine. I am drawn not only to the shape, but also what a horse's foot signifies - strength, grace, beauty - and how it was paramount in the development of our own history.

This piece is sculpted in clay over a strong integrated armature and painted using high quality acrylics. Liquid gold acrylic has been applied deep into the crevices on the surface and give a subtle glow from within the whole piece.

It is mounted on a solid piece of reclaimed West Coast cedar.
