Jane Shaw Sculpture

Award winning British sculptor, Jane Shaw is passionate about capturing the essence and movement of animals and wildlife.  Her style of strong, spontaneous gestural strokes portrays her subjects’ natural power, dynamism and emotion.  Often working directly from life, she produces bronzes for the home and larger scale garden pieces.

"My company was delighted to host a number of private views for artists in our boardroom in Westminster.  Jane contributed to a number of them and her works were both stunning and popular, not only selling to our clients but also securing commissions.  We liked her works so much that we bought a sculpture of a greyhound which had pride of place on our boardroom table and attracted considerable interest and excitement and proved to be a real asset to discussions.  Her talent extends across a range of different forms and sizes which makes for some fascinating and beautiful works of art."

Edward Wild, London

"I am delighted with Jane's charismatic sculpture of a quintuple life-size hare in electric-blue resin. The sculpture adorns the approach to The House and is both artistically brilliant and fun. My teenage son thinks so too."

Still not finished. But he’s still got attitude!  Stands at 53cm tall so this domestic savannah cat will be standing proud!  I’m trying to reach a balance of their wild roots whilst being breed with domestic cats. More work on him over the next week or so.

Whilst this is a sculpture I did a few years ago, the subject still resonates. Mrs Darling was the most extraordinary pet sheep.  We were very lucky to look after her for a year or so when her real owner moved house. She is a Swartbles sheep which is a Dutch breed originally and for me the most distinguishing features are their strong ears and lovely Roman nose. Mrs Darling showed off these distinctive qualities with her own unique style as you will see from this reel. 
I spent hours trying to capture her face and wonderfully gentle but stubborn qualities and her love of human company. So much so she was often found  in the kitchen if I had left doors and gates open by accident!  Whilst I have sold several bronze resin editions for inside and outside the home, I have just been asked for the first time to have a bronze edition cast which will then be going on a long journey to the States to peer out behind the bushes with elegance and wisdom. 
Looking through all these photos and videos very much reminded me of her spirit - even the ability of having a little grandchild when she was with us and whilst she sadly died shortly after her stay with us, her spirit very much lives on in all our hearts for this who know her in Dorset. She was well known!  It was lovely to try and immortalise her.

Almost finished as a wax maquette before I scale up this little cheeky but delightful #longhairedjackrussell - there’s a lot not quite right but sometimes when you know it works sculpturally it’s best to pause for a moment and then re-visit at a later date.

I think I have finished this sitting German shepherd currently in wax but soon to be off to the foundry to be cast as a limited edition of 12. The stance and his general body shape came to me very quickly but his face took a bit more time. I wanted to bring out the wolf like characteristics in their shape of their bodies often lost underneath all their fur!  He sits about 27cm high
