When a foal leaps into the air, for a few moments, they are able to defy nature.
Made using a single continuous piece of wire, this horse sculpture is the equivalent "sketching" in 3 dimensions.
Mounted on a solid Honduran Mahogany base with a hand-rubbed tung oil finish.
This is a one-of-a-kind sculpture. No others of its kind exist or will be reproduced.
Sculptures are package in their own foam inserts to ensure they arrive in perfect condition.
This sculpture was exhibited at the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art at Palace House in Newmarket, UK in November 2016 for the annual "Horse in Art" Exhibition held by the Society for Equestrian Artists.
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.
