Product details

It is important to me to capture movement in my sculptures – a split second in the subject’s physicality.  The energy that changes art from feeling posed into art that contains a bit of life.  She went through various incarnations before we settled on the final pose.

I spend a lot of time on Hampstead Heath gazing at runners going past and found that runners trying to increase their speed contained a power and impulse that was exciting to watch which I’ve tried to encapsulate with this sculpture

I decided to cast her in bronze as it’s such a heavy and tactile material, and when sculpting a subject with long arms and legs, it is important to use a material that isn’t brittle.  The technique used in the creation of bronze sculptures has changed very little for hundreds of years. The subject is sculpted in wax on a wire armature shown some images of this process), before going to the foundry for casting. Bronze is a robust and resistant material that fairs well outside. It has a wonderful weight and feels dense and cool to the touch. Using wax to create the initial mould allows for a high level of detail on the final sculpture. Certain nuances in colour can be produced through the use of patinas.

This sculpture is a limited edition of 12, after which the mould will be destroyed. There is currently one available immediately.


Plinth 17cm x 14.5cm x 3 .5cm

Approximate size of base of runner 12 ½ cm x 6cm (at widest part) and height of statue (without plinth) 27 cms

The lead time for further orders will be up to 10 weeks to allow for the casting process.
