Sally Matthews (Medium)

We are very lucky to be showing two life sized hounds, made of feather and glue on a steel frame, by the highly respected Sally Matthews.  Here is a little bit about Sally, her work and her dogs.
What inspired you to sculpt dogs?
I love sculpting dogs as they become an individual as I make them.
What materials do you use and why?
I use all sorts of different materials chosen for their colour, texture or sometimes their relationship to the animal.
Why are dogs important to you?
I have never not had a dog.  Mousey was my first as an adult and a true friend while working in different places.
Ever won a rosette?
My dogs have had rosettes for things like the most beautiful eyes or the waggiest tail but never the best behaved.
