Sculptor of the Max the miracle dog Statue

As you may know, I’m the sculptor of the Max the miracle dog statue. I’ve talked about the actual making of the bronze in My blog, so in this post I’d just like to add a couple of pictures from April 2021; the first time I saw the finished bronze.

As the sculptor, I was one of the first to get to see the finished Max statue in bronze. It was moulded and cast in County Durham by Aron McCartney of the McArt studios in Barnard Castle. Aron reproduced my sculpted wax original faithfully and did a fantastic job. After working on the ivory-coloured wax for many months it was fascinating for me to finally see it in bronze, especially with all the subtle shades of the added patinas.

The statue has since been unveiled in Hope Park, Keswick in the heart of the English Lake District.

A year on since I first saw it finished, I’m thrilled that so many others have now seen the Max the miracle dog statue. It continues to bring people into Keswick and the Lake District, which in turn helps guest houses, hotels, other local businesses, as well as Hope Park itself. The statue of this little spaniel also continues to provide comfort even though the dog himself is longer here.

As the sculptor of the Max the miracle dog statue, I’m pleased to have played a part in this positive project, and that it has been so well received.
