I have only ever seen a hare in the wild, for just a moment and then he’s gone but I always cherish that moment! Brown Hares graze on vegetation and nibble bark from young trees and bushes and shelter in a shallow depression in the ground or grasses, but when disturbed, can be seen bounding across fields using their powerful hind legs to propel them forwards, often in a zigzag pattern and this is what I wanted to capture in this bronze sculpture of a running hare.
I wanted to show this bronze wildlife sculpture of a hare running for his life around the bend, out of site, so I could exaggerate the movement and fear in his face and body. Everything is on a curve. I am now working on very large version of this bronze sculpture in plaster for the garden!
