Cassius – Full size Boxer commission

Last year I was delighted, if not a little daunted, to be asked to make a life sized Boxer dog, a faithful representation of a much beloved pet, Cassius. There were to be two copies made in bronze resin, so that one could sit in each of two homes.

I have included a series of photographs showing you some of the stages leading up the the finished clay original alongside the final cast piece.
