All Ears is a limited edition bronze sculpture of a Head of a Hare by Jane Shaw. Hares are very popular wildlife animals to capture either on a canvas or as sculptures. I always become very excited when I spot a hare, running, listening and looking. A very individual feature of the hare, are their amazing long ears, and in this bronze sculpture, I have exaggerated them, and made them the main feature, as the hare turns.
This bronze wildlife sculpture looks very at home, in an alcove, in its own space, but equally, I have seen it placed on a coffee table, beside a lamp and it seems to always watch you in the room!
After completing a degree in History of Art at Manchester University, Jane spent her early career with a firm of Fine Art Valuers and Consultants travelling and living abroad before returning to London to set up and run a recruitment company, which she then sold after a decade. On moving to Dorset in 2013, she has revived her love for sculpture inspired by her life long interest in animals, and the outdoors. Jane is passionate about the portrayal of both animals and humans, and often working directly from life, focusing on movement and the overall essence of her subject. Jane continues on her own sculpture projects, producing work in both bronze and bronze resin and is now beginning to develop larger scale projects in plaster which are cast for the outdoors. In 2015 she was awarded First Prize for her sculpture of a Racing Greyhound at the Bath & West Show and then won the same award in 2016 for her sculpture of a Hare’s Head – ‘All Ears’.
