'Bumper to bumper' turtle sculpture - work in progress 4

I got the pieces back from the foundry nicely patinated, picked up the granite base, had some holes carefully drilled in it at the relevant positions and have assembled 'Bumper to bumper'.
Voila!
Finished.
The above pics I snapped at home with my Canon powershot, the one below was done professionally.
More stuff on my website.

I love your stuff Steve!
I too love creating "critters" but I work mainly in Super Sculpey for reproduction as giftware items.
Your pieces are so fun looking...and I do like your mice very much.

I like the sizes you choose and I like the poses you use. Your sculptures are full of life and very typical of the animal you are sculpting. Your love of your subjects is obvious. Do you really bronze your own sculptures?

Thanks all for your appreciation of my work!
It means it connects with people, which is what it's all about.
Do I really bronze my own sculptures?
Well, foundries do that part, I send them either original sculptures or waxes (after getting a mold made).
It's all lost wax, hot cast bronze on my website.
Thanks again,
Steve.
