Works In Progress - See the 'available bronze' page for the finished versions.
These examples are of my latest works recently completed.
The cheetahs were ready for purchase last September 2019. The lioness and Impala is still waiting to get to Italy for casting.
Due to Covid 19 things have been delayed.
All the other models on this page are now available in bronze and can be found on the Bronzes available page
These three cheetah have just been alerted to a possible meal!
I have always enjoyed their unique form, and find them captivating to watch when hunting.
I wanted to show this pair, a male and female dog who are alert and ready for action. Wild dogs are amazing creatures, fast and precise and working as a team they are incredible to watch.
This is the clay model before casting
I have always been enthused by the range of movement Impalas go through when leaping. In this bronze I show a single male in the final stage of landing after a leap through the air, so as to isolate the magnificence of their grace.
Male impalas are a great source of inspiration for me, I love their elegant clean lines, their bodies ripple with every movement which is a something I find captivating.
I love the energy involved in a chase. Both animals working at optimum levels of both precision and fitness. Lions often miss their prey. The impala is leaping away, every cell of his body is pumping with adrenaline, in that instant the lioness knows she is thwarted and the chase is over.
Cheetah head sketch
I usually do sketch models in the field of the animal I am working on, this is one example of the cheetah head I did for the three cheetah brothers.
Four impala leaping
This is perhaps one of the most elegant of all animals, I never tire of watching them run. In this piece I try to capture their graceful movement. This is the clay model before casting
On a recent trip to another area of Ruaha National Park I was inspired by an elegant group of ostrich interacting together. This is the result of this encounter.
Lioness with wildebeest
Here I show a lioness with a recently aquired meal.
