- Fly Fishing Medallion
Alto relief model showing two horses interacting
My third voyage into the medallion realm, Fly Fishing is an alto (high) relief medallion. I wanted to capture a moment with this model, avoiding the high-drama that horses often inspire I opted to show two horses having a quiet moment of mutual grooming, oblivious to everything except for that itch!
I entered the model shown below (the bronze/brass combination) into the RESS (Realistic Equine Sculpture Society) Medallion Competition. The results came in as follows:
Sculpture (Advanced Section) - 1st Place
SMB Award for "Celebrating the Spirit of the Equus"
Blackberry Lane Pottery Award for "Best Narrative"
Westerly Design Award for "Excellence in Composition"
As with my other models, I enjoyed producing a variety of different finishes including combination such as those below.
