Ginger (XP from Animal and Wildlife Art)

Hi everyone,

Just sharing a little horse sculpture I made over summer. Happily, she's been sold, but I forgot to measure her before I took her to the art show where she found her new home. She was somewhere around 7-8 inches long by maybe 5.5 - 6 inches tall. I used copper wire for most of her, but used steel for her legs to suggest white socks. I also tried a slightly different technique for the legs to try and get more anatomically correct forms. Her mane and tail were fine, glittering chain and her ears were wing embellishments. I welcome C&C, but since I don't have her anymore, I can't fix anything. Her feet stood firmly and evenly on the ground...but the old railroad tie I set her on for the photos would suggest otherwise! I didn't notice that when I took the photos.

Thanks for looking!

Re: Ginger (XP from Animal and Wildlife Art)

I have a close friend who is a "Ginger" personality - glorious red hair, beautifully coiffed and fabulous from the top of her glorious mane to the tips of her toes - just like your sculpture. I'm always amazed, not only at how expert you are technically with your sculptures, but you breathe life, personality and character to them too - simply stunning work!

Thank you, Richard! Copper has become a popular choice in these sculptures.

Thank you, Christel!

Jo, thanks so much! Yes, horses are lovely when they have matching socks.

Thank you so much, CaliAnn. That's so very kind of you. I really appreciate the comments.
