This is the test horse I used to see if paper clay sculpted well and could be painted. I originally wasn’t going to go pro – just wanted to sculpt the horses I envisioned and have them be only for us. Paper clay doesn’t hold up well and so reproducing them in Bronze was necessary which meant becoming part of the business world of sculptors.  I sculpt them for the joy of it – and am very happy that they are out in the world bringing joy to the art collectors who invest in them. From this all the rest followed – the photos below are the bronze reproductions of the originals and also a bunch of other photos that have been taken along the way!  Enjoy!
