This model of a very popular breed, in fact one of the most popular in the world, the Retriever, has been designed by artist Michael Simpson. He captures the gentle, happy nature they have. There is almost a smile on it's face.....
Michael 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 dog is made from solid foundry bronze, with a hand finished patina.
It is a limited edition sculpture - one of 150.
She stands 10cm tall and measures 15cm from the tip of her tail to the end of her nose.
Each piece comes beautifully boxed with a certificate of authenticity. The certificate also includes information about the artist and the edition number .
