18 May: Please note that orders placed for Moon Gazing Hare will be delivered on Tuesday 2nd June.
Moon Gazing Hare has been very popular and we have sold all the castings that we had in stock.
We do not cast all 250 of the edition at the same time as each one takes over two weeks to make. Instead, we cast a few at a time and as they sell, we cast the next ones in the edition.
Our next castings of Moon Gazing Hare are being lovingly hand made by our team of craftsmen at the moment and are available to order now, for delivery on Tuesday 2nd June.
This solid bronze sculpture of a Moon Gazing Hare (3"w x 5"h x 2"d) is an original Nelson and Forbes foundry casting of a sculpture by Sue Maclaurin. We cast this piece by hand in an English foundry in an edition of just 250 castings and it took two weeks to create. It was cast in response to requests from collectors who asked Sue Maclaurin to sculpt a hare in this iconic Moongazer pose.
The Moon Gazing Hare is presented in a beautiful and very high quality hand made gift box, created by our box maker in the Midlands and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
The certificate was individually printed by hand from an original copper plate engraving in Hampshire, before being signed by the artist and numbered with the number of this casting. It is your guarantee that this is an original foundry casting of the sculptor’s work that she has personally approved.
This bronze casting is a perfect recreation of the artist’s original sculpture and was made in a Birmingham foundry. It bears the artist's signature and its own unique edition number. As every piece is cast by hand and then the mould destroyed, each one is unique and so will be very slightly different to the last.
This piece complements Sue Maclaurin’s bronze hares: Alert Hare, Running Hare, Rolling Hare, Lying Hare, Flying Hare, Listening Hare, Hare Washing Ear, Boxing Hares and Tumbling Hares.
