Terrier – Family Pet Commission
Otto, A much loved family member, commissioned by a client in London, Ms Jane van Ammel
200mm L x 180mm W Height: 280 mm Weight: 5.1 kg Base: Granite or Wood Code: RJG038
“Otto was a much loved member of a family in London who sadly succumbed to cancer whilst I was still creating him. He was my first family pet recreation and I had great enjoyment in attempting to ensure that his spirit and nature was captured. He was known for his smile and the curtain eyebrows. I chose to create him looking up at his owner in a way that he was best remembered. The end result was a 100% accurate version of Otto and a very happy client. I felt very privileged to be in a position to ensure that Otto lived on in the hearts of those who loved him.”

Bull And The Bear Sculpture
Commissioned by Citadel Asset Management Group
570 mm (L) x 380 mm (W) Height: 480 mm Weight: +- 13 kg Granite Base Commission: once-off Code: RJG026
“Done as a portrayal of the Bull and Bear financial markets, both images, that of a Grizzly bear in full attack mode and the mature Bull, anger reflected in eyes and mannerism, leaning into the fight with the bull attempting to bore into the Grizzly. I chose images that reflected immense strength of equally matched markets fighting to get the upper hand and not one where either individual was in a submissive stance reflecting defeat. My sculpture captures a moment of equally matched strength in the offensive stance. It was a commission for the Citadel Asset Management firm in Claremont, one as a gift to the CEO from staff and a second one made for the foyer of the Head Office.”
