This sculpture depicts an action shot of a little rugby player running with the ball. In black paverpol with bronze highlights. The actual little boy is 20cm tall and the width of the base is approx 10cm. He is made from wire, foil and fabric which is dipped into a textile hardener called Paverpol.
I have made this in a generic colour but as this is made to order, please specify if you have a colour or gender preference; it could be made in bronze colour with the clothing in the team colours of your choice.

Within my sculptures I endeavour to capture an emotional response through movement and dynamics. These are bespoke, quirky mixed media sculptures all using wire, foil and fabric dipped into a weatherproof textile hardener called Paverpol. Each unique piece is individually made; as they evolve they form a spirit of their own. This keeps the joy of making them alive and exciting.

I am happy to post to most countries; if your country is not listed below, just let me know and I will find out the postage costs for you.

I adore my sculpture which exceeded my expectations❤️Stephanie could not have been more helpful throughout the whole process. I asked for a couple of changes to the original sculpture, 2 girls and 1 boy 💜💙💜 and also asked for the hair to be changed on the “Mum”. The piece now depicts a time in my life as a young mum with my 3 wee ones. Just perfect ❤️

Stephanie makes the most beautiful sculptures she is really talented and she is always happy to help you to choose what you want. I wanted a sculpture that was very personal for me I had seen similar one on her sight. My son had been very ill had radiotherapy in the Royal Marston I had to live in London while he was having treatment I also had to take my other two sons so Connor use to get very tired so my son Kaya would push him and Mishak would stand on the back. He used his chair when we went on days out for a few years but thankfully he doesn’t need it now he is amazing done so well.

I contacted Stephanie with a personal request, and i am so thankful she took up the challenge to make a set of figurines of my boys, the older in a wheelchair. Two weeks later i received my boys and am over the moon 😍 Even my husband loves them, and he does not like figurines ;) My older one was mesmerised when he saw it and my little one exclaimed ‘it’s Joe and me’ with the biggest smile :) Truly talented artist and i am super thankful for my gorgeous figuines 😍

Words literally cannot express how beautiful this fairy is - she literally sums us Penny for Your Thoughts beautifully - serene and calm. I've bought her for a Christmas present and cannot wait for her to be opened. So, so beautiful :-)
