Golden Retriever

30 Mar

A few weeks ago, I was commissioned to make a sculpture of a Golden Retriever.  I had never tried this breed of dog before, so it made for an interesting challenge.  The curled tail, the deep chest, the square-ish muzzle…it was a lot of fun!  Now that my client has received the sculpture, I can share it here with you, dear readers.

Penny – Golden Retriever

– Measures approximately 8 inches long by 5 inches tall by 2 & 1/4 inches wide.

– She’s made primarily with paddle wire, though there is some fencing wire in there, too.  The wire sizes range from 17 to 26 gauge.  The ears are metal leaf pendants, and the nose is a black glass bead.  The collar is real leather from an old purse strap, and the metal tag was a piece from a necklace.  I punched the tag with the letter P for the dog’s name, Penny.

Thank you for looking!

        I’m happy to hear all is well with you. Things are going pretty well here, as well. Really lovely weather out there this week, so that’s always great. Time to get my camera out and about with me again. 🙂

        I don’t blame you for taking a break from blogging…it’s a lot of work to keep up with it. Oh, thank you so much! I’m so glad you like my work. Have a great weekend!
