“At Goodman’s Fields we had the opportunity to create a landmark that celebrates British craftsmanship as well as the history of the local community.” (Berkeley Homes)

Hamish was commissioned by Berkeley Homes to create six life-and-a-quarter size bronze horses for the main Piazza at Goodman’s Fields, London - for which he was awarded the annual Marsh Awards for Excellence in Public Sculpture and Public Fountains in 2016 by the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association. Each remarkable horse sculpture is available individually as a limited edition of 6.

This larger than life-size bronze horse sculpture of a pretty mare, shows her picking up her feet with her tail streaming behind her. Hamish has captured the Goodman’s Mare on the alert, communicating to us a sense of her intelligence as well as her physicality.

Exact scale replicas of all the Goodman’s Fields Horses by Hamish Mackie are also available in limited editions.

This sculpture is based on a European warm blood horse. When looking for a well-proportioned mare, I was advised to visit a horse called Pinkerton, and this is the horse I modelled this sculpture on. Pinkerton visited my studio on several occasions where I was able to observe, photograph, take measurements and sculpt from life.
