This week is Red Squirrel Week and so I thought I’d show you some of my Red Squirrel sculptures which help raise funds for red squirrels in the UK, especially here in Cumbria!
Let’s start with ‘Hope’. She is a wall mounted sculpture in deep relief, and I’ve sculpted her peeping out from a hole in a pine tree. Hope is a limited edition of 150 pieces with two thirds of the edition already sold, and she is hand cast and then painted by two local companies which are within 25 miles of my studio.
There are still Red Squirrels here in Cumbria, and so with every squirrel sculpture sale I make, I donate a percentage of my profits to red squirrel conservation projects in the UK. This includes the charity, ‘Brampton & District Red Squirrel Group’, of which I am one of the founders, a trustee, the treasurer and a volunteer.
My first two Red Squirrel sculptures; Charles and Willow, have now both completely sold out, however, George (a squirrel kitten) and his sibling Rowan are still available, both in cold-cast copper and in hand painted resin.
