Sculptures of Dogs by the Sculptress JOEL
The Sculptress JOEL has been asked to make portrait sculpture of many different Breeds of Dogs of many shapes and sizes and individual dogs of great presence and character.
Here are a few examples, many more can be seen at the Gallery.

View of original Labrador Dog and the portrait in clay and below, the finished Bronze, called Loyalty, this beautiful statue is a popuar fine art limited edition of only ten (X).
Individual dogs have different appearances and character, and examples of different breeding such as working gun dogs occur - as an example of this the sculptress JOEL has now completed three life sized portrait heads of very different Labrador individuals and types. In addition to the classic head of Loyalty,
we also have a young working Labrador Devotion
and a Big, generous boy dog called Zeb.
This shows how much variation in character and expression there is – even within the popular Labrador breed.
“It is taking the time to talk about the individual and to watch them with their owner, that makes the difference” said JOEL “ And taking all the hours needed to add the detail that brings the life and essence of the one we are celebrating”
Small Scale Sculpture
Here is JOEL working on the small scale portrait of a Champion Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The sculpture cast in Bronze, with a lovely red Bronze Tudor cushion to stand upon.
There are other retrievers and collies, terriers and working dog sculptures for sale and these can all be seen at the Gallery.
