Hares remain one of Hamish’s signature subjects which he regularly returns to. This is partly to see how his sculpting style has changed over the years, but also because, as he says,”Hares just lend themselves so well to sculpture!”

Happily, brown hare numbers are recovering in line with increased cereal production and modern day farming methods adopting agri-environmental schemes.

Working from life observing hares in the field, all Hamish’s new hare sculptures have been sculpted using natural clay sourced within a few miles of his Hook Norton studio.  Working with this organic material allows Hamish to leave a wide range of mark making, from dynamically loose gestures to incredibly tight attention to detail. The nature of the material, especially if worked when very wet, often leaves an unrepeatable surface quality. Casting a smooth surface which can be machine finished is one thing, but to cast this kind of texture requires the highest level of expertise and quality of bronze casting.

Sculpture in the Making

The original clay model pictured is now being cast into bronze. To express your interest in one of Hamish’s new hare sculptures which will be coming out of the foundry soon, please contact Hamish on +44 (0)7971028098 or send him a message via the enquiry form below.
