Portfolio for Priscilla Hann - Commissionaportrait

Priscilla Hann was born in Shropshire, studied at Wolverhampton College of Art and The Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, U.S.A. , where she won the major sculpture prize. Her work is cast in bronze and silver and is mainly of horses and dogs, but she also works on a variety of other subjects. Her pieces are true to life and she specialises in accurate portraiture of domestic animals. She has exhibited in London and the U.S.A. and has pieces on exhibition in Switzerland, Jersey, Newmarket and Cirencester and in private collections in England, Ireland, U.S.A. and Australia. Her commissions include a life-sized pony mare and foal for the Furlong Shopping Centre in Ringwood, and a half-sized driving horse in a private collection. Sculpture portraits include Aldaniti, Mister Baileys, Dublin Flyer, and a one-third life sized sheep group.

Statement      In the first meeting I would take photos, sketches etc. and return home and start work. I would get to the nearly finished stage then spend another day or so with the animal for the finishing touches. Of course, if the commission is abroad I would make the piece at home then send the photos of the finished model to the client.  
The photographic session would probably only take an hour or so. It is generally difficult to work from other people's photos as they do not understand angles, proportions, position etc., though I have had some success with the head alone, the animal in question had died.  
I make the models in wax, plasticine or clay, dependent upon size and finish (smooth or textured).  
The piece is then presented to the client for their approval. Some adjustments may be made at this stage. After the piece is accepted the client is committed to the final payment. It is then taken to the foundry where it will be cast in bronze (or silver). This takes approximately 3 months (again dependent on size, difficulty in casting, i.e. multiple animals, lots of tack etc.)
