On a recent research trip to Barcelona, I saw several wonderful sculptures with lovely texture. While I was there, I was also inspired to see how Picasso’s style had changed throughout his working life.

With my bronze Hare Running sculpture (and with Hare Sitting 2023), I set out to have texture lead the way. In my mind, all marks and texture have to have a purpose. There is always a risk that artists can overwork and so ruin the spontaneity and liveliness of a surface that captures the physical energy of the making. I have always been fascinated that a good foundry can capture this into bronze. It’s one thing for me to leave a finger print in soft wet clay, quite another to cast that level of detail into bronze. It makes smooth seem easy!

Hares have been one of my signature subjects for many years, and one I enjoy returning to. They are large enough to really get involved with the surface handling.

Both Hare Running 2023 and Hare Sitting 2023 can be placed inside or, as they both have threaded holes in the bottom, they can also be secured outside.
