Brian Hollingworth - Cattle Sculptures

Belted Galloway and Gloucester Cow Sculpture

These two sculptures were made on special commission for farmers who owned and bred them

 

The first stage of any sculpture is the observation and drawing. The client has supplied photographs and information from the Gloucestershire Cow society.

Brian is observing and drawing, these drawings are sent by e mail to the client for consideration.

Deciding exactly what you want is a very important stage of a commission.

+-This is a sign of the true experience and skill of the sculptor. All the essential requirements of a Gloucester cow are there from the beginning.

        

The Gloucester cow now with the basic proportions is placed upon a revolving turntable. The clay props around it are essential. The clay has to remain soft and able to be modelled but the legs are unable to take the weight. Hence pieces of clay support the still wet sculpture

 

The basic shape is developed. The detail is gradually added. The photograph of the cow has been used throughout the construction. The proportions are carefully used to create a Gloucester cow sculpture.

Using slip i.e. liquid clay with oxide stains, the colour is added. The character of the cow emerges

 

Special Commissions are undertaken where a client reqiures an animal of their choice. These are usually made in ceramics and are unique sculptures.

Price Guide £650 - £1250 Price depends on time complexity and size. Above all time taken
