I have had a passion for horses, since I was a child, having had ponies of my own growing up and now one of my daughters is obsessed with the equestrian world so I have returned to that lovely horse smell I have always wanted to capture in a bottle! Or that calm rustling sound in a stable, as the horse munches away oblivious to the elements outside!
This equestrian bronze study of 3 horses was the result of me wanting to go on a journey of learning the various stages of a gallop. What I realised is there are subtle changes that happen with the shape and outline of their body, as well as the more obvious changes of the leg movement and I wanted to bring these stages together, and to see how they relate.
We have this bronze equestrian sculpture behind the sofa in our sitting room, on a half moon table, and it looks very striking as you walk in the room. I have also seen it look equally as compelling, in the centre of a dining table which would definitely create quite a talking point! I modelled these three horse sculptures in wax, and I had them cast as a bronze wildlife sculpture, as well as bronze resin, as limited editions. The horses can also be purchased individually.
