Miniature Bronze collectables with precious stones

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

Little Sprinting Hare A 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.
