dressage sculpture chosen for trophy

I was recently asked to create a perpetual trophy from one of my wire sculptures. The horse and rider are created from a single strand of copper wire, which is then nickel-plated, resulting in a shiny chrome-like finish.

The event was a dressage competition, so I designed the base in an oval shape with a rim, painted black to resemble a top hat!

I attached the sculpture to the base with several tiny eye-hook screws... a very challenging endeavour! ...but the end result was quite stunning. I thought I would share it.

  1. That is beautiful!! It would be wonderful to have that gracing a special place in a hard working competitors home.
