Sleeping Staffordshire Bull Terrier | Dog sculptures | Bronze animal sculptures

This sculpture of a dog, was a commission for someone who was very fond of their aging Staffordshire Bull Terrier and  whilst I was keen to show the essence of this breed of dog, which is one of strength and power, I wanted to show no aggression whatsoever.  I realised these dogs are incredibly gentle souls, and now I see why they are so often miss-understood!  Their powerful, looks do not portray their nature!

It was a very tricky sculpture to do, but I enjoyed getting to know Staffis, drawing them, watching the way they moved, and taking endless photos…..I re-worked the piece several times, until I was totally happy.  So here is a gentle giant sleeping, oblivious to the world around him!

I worked on this piece in wax, and then had it cast at a foundry in Dorset as a limited edition.  Whilst this bronze sculpture looks very elegant in a sitting room, it could also be cast as a life size sculpture for the outdoors.

Materials: This can be cast as a limited edition of 9 in Bronze or Bronze resin as a limited edition of 25

Measurements: L 20cm   W 9cm  H 6cm
