Description

Inspired by frequent trips to Connemara, Co. Galway, Ireland where one ends up in a traffic jam like nowhere else! Sheep enjoy their leisurely stroll on narrow roads.
These sheep are hot cast bronze sculptures, made in Galway. Very detailed pieces are beautifully patinated. Each sculpture is unique. You have to shake it for luck!

Approx dimensions: H 10,5cm L 14cm W 7cm, weight 2kg
Each sculpture is signed.
All my sculptures are hot cast by myself in my art foundry. They are solid and heavy and each is one of a kind. I use the lost wax method of casting. Where bronze is melted at around 2300 degrees C and then poured into a mould. It is a highly skilled, complex, time and labour intensive process.

I am a graduate of Vilnius Academy of Arts where I studied fine arts, and specialised in jewellery & sculpture. I works in a variety of media including bronze, precious metals, oil, and graphics. However my passion is bronze sculpture.
I sculpt, cast and patinate my own work in my studio in Galway and I have an international following. I use ‘lost wax’ technique and participate in an entire process of sculpture-casting; from mould making to its final finish. My inspiration comes from observing the surrounding ‘neighbourhood.’ I likes to explore texture and colors. I pays a lot of attention to details and small parts which makes it a difficult task to cast and patinate as beautifully as I has done. My pieces are sweet and collectible.
