Speed is a limited edition bronze sculpture of a greyhound by Jane Shaw.
Greyhound dogs are bred to race and so I could not resist portraying this bronze animal sculpture, of one of my favourite dogs, in full speed, showing all the movement of speed of light – it had to be dynamic and graceful, like the greyhound breed as they race through the fields.
The best place I have seen my bronze sculpture is positioned in the middle of a board table…..perhaps it has helped set the scene for many conversations!
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’.
