Trio of Small Gift Horses
In 2010 I spent a month in Italy working at the Centro Dedalo D’Arte with sculptor Stefano Breschi. I wanted to realise my Gift Horses in 3D. They are modeled in German Stoneware clay, fired and then finished with beeswax and oil pigment, to give a smooth stone appearance. The bases are 13th Century oak, reclaimed from a restoration project in nearby Lindfield.
I created a group of 10 small horses, all approx. 25 cms high, and one large one, Cormac who stands at 55 cms.
