These sweet woodland mice make the the perfect pair in the quest to find the cosiest spot deep in the forest floor. And they appear to have found it amongst the foliage right next to a delectable supply of wild mushrooms! This charming design by Michael Simpson is cast in resin bronze with subtle highlights to the foliage and mushrooms, and with each mouse delicately hand painted with artist's oils.
This piece is packed in the beautiful branded box with a colour booklet detailing the full collection.
Although Mick studied fine art at Staffordshire Polytechnic it was the traditions of his home town of Stoke-on-Trent which inspired his love for sculpture. The famous towns forming the region have created some of the worlds finest works and respect for the craft of the sculptor and designer is well deserved.
There are few modellers who can produce accurate and detailed studies covering such diverse subjects as dogs, cats, African wildlife and the female form. Mick is one of the few who can achieve this goal working from reference books, his own drawings, photographs and observation. Like so many artists and sculptors, his studio walls are covered in this reference.Mick is unusual in another way in that he is one of the few sculptors preferring to model in clay. Mostly wax is used for its versatility but Mick loves the freedom clay offers and is quite content to work around its limitations.
