A Limited Edition Bronze Yellow Lab Sculpture by Laurel
11″h x 15″w x 9.5″d
Edition of 18
This is Swing Time. Here you see two yellow Labrador Retrievers engaging in a dance that was in the 1930’s something of an act of rebellion against the establishment. This is a sophisticated and delicate piece, perfectly balanced to stand on it’s own without the black granite base. But as with most of my pieces, having it on the base with the turntable adds a wonderful extra dimension.
I used this piece as an opportunity to explore the sense of volume possible while sculpting with thin sheets of clay. As the piece turns you can see how delicate the legs and tails are. The breed is expressed through the profiles, ears, proportions, tails and, in this case, the patina.
