1 Fine Contemporary Small Great Dane Dog "On Guard" Sculpture Limited Edition 62/295 By April Shepherd.
Title "On Guard"
Impressed with April Shepherd initials.
With certificate & original packaging box.
A feature that stands out is how beautifully decorative this dog sculpture is.
Made from cold cast porcelain.
Cold porcelain is a crafting material most commonly made from cornstarch and white glue, not from porcelain as its name would suggest. The material can also include small amounts of oils and glycerol. Because most of the constituents are biodegradable, lemon juice or sodium benzoate are sometimes used to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi. It is most often used for at-home crafting and sculpting due to it drying from air exposure rather than heat curing. The material can also be dissolved by heat or water.
April Shepherd is an established British sculptor producing highly expressive movement and the natural world.
Her sensitive yet unsentimental animal studies have won her considerable acclaim.
Her concepts are often enriched by her love of literature, folklore & mythology. April attempts to push the bounderies of the materials she used. Working entirely without armatures allows her to maintain control of the evolving piece and energise the forms she creates.
Her works are held in private collections worldwide and has been shown in many mixed exhibitions at venues including the Royal Academy.
The Great Dane also know as the German mastiff or Deutsche Dogge, is a breed of dog from Germany. The Great Dane descends from hunting dogs from the middle ages and is one of the largest breeds in the world.
