Running Bronze Hare Sculpture

Frances Pelly
Running Bronze Hare Sculpture by Frances Pelly is a decorative piece, inspired by traditional Netsuke sculptures and Inuit carvings. These pieces join a collection of unique soapstone hare sculptures which pay homage to the hares that visit Frances' fields in the remote Orkney Islands. Each form references the sculpture of two ancient cultures, as well as prehistoric stone carvings. These pieces are limited edition, with only six available in each form.

These pieces were created at the Powderhall Bronze foundry in Edinburgh, using moulds made of Frances’ original soapstone carvings. An oxide patina is then applied to create the antique green hue; evocative of the sea which laps Orcadian shores.
