Here is another selection of my limited edition, miniature bronze sculptures, mounted on their Ebony and Aluminum bases.

Little Sprinting HareA few of the editions are set with precious stones such as Diamonds, Tanzanites, and Rubies, in search of a Japanese Netsuke inspired aesthetic.

Horned Eagle Owl

Sitting Eagle Owl on his post up high, is rather a plump downy fellow.

PangolinMaquette

The Pangolin or ‘Ietermagog’ is an interactive sculpture that is made to pick up off of its base. He makes a spiral, curled into a ball.

My Portfolio: I am a sculptor and artist. I studied Fine Art at Mandela Metropolitan University. I worked as a fettler and an artisan at a bronze foundry for a couple of years. I was a teacher of sculpture at Somerset College for four and a half years and also lectured space and volume at Stellenbosch University for a short period. I did teach sculpture privately. I have a public studio/gallery in Stellenbosch South Africa. I do private and corporate commissions on sculptural portraiture, animal and bird sculptures. Sculptures are made in wax, plasticine or plaster before I have them cast in bronze. I am currently represented by the George Thornton Art Gallery in the UK, Nottingham, where I have sculptures on Exhibition. Locally in South Africa I have a few bronze sculptures at the Posthouse Gallery as well as an extensive collection of bronze sculptures at my Studio Gallery, 44 Church Street Stellenbosch South Africa. I do illustrative pen and ink drawings and the occasional lithograph. My other website is www.stephenrautenbach.co.za and www.stephenrautenbach.com
