What a handsome sculpture of a sleek otter checking all is safe.
Designed by Michael Simpson who studied in Staffordshire and was inspired by the traditions of Stoke on Trent. As a result of this he works in clay for his initial modelling, unlike most bronze artists who use wax.
The otter is made from solid foundry bronze, with a hand finished patina. This piece stands 6cm tall, is 4.7cm at its widest point and weighs about 140g.
This is a limited edition piece - one of 250 .
Each piece comes beautifully boxed with a certificate of authenticity. The certificate also includes information about the artist and the edition number .
