Coming soon... Eclair

 

Eclair is a mini Dutch Warmblood (KWPN) mare. I sculpted her basic shape digitally and then printed it with a resin printer. Her top layer and detailing are done the old fashioned way, by hand, because I like the look and feel of it. :) 

 

Eclair's proud, but friendly nature and strong legs betray her ancient Gelderlander bloodlines. I imagine she is an elegant and powerful mover. The Dutch Warmblood is the world's best sport horse (I may be biased here). She sure was fun to sculpt!

 


Eclair is quite large for a mini. Here she is with her stock horse buddy, Mojo. 

 

 
The name just came to me when I put this freshly 3D printed part on my table. Never sculpt when hungry. :)

Eclair will become available for ordering next week.

Sneaky peeky

 

The editions for Mojo and Tassel are closed, thank you so much for all the orders that came in! 

My next available mini resin will be a Dutch WB mare. Here's a little teaser for you. :)


October 21, 2020

Only 10 days left to order Tassel and Mojo!

 

Just a friendly reminder that the ordering window for Mojo and Tassel will close on October 31, midnight. Don’t miss out! They both look amazing in a variety of colors, so get your unpainted resin and get creative! :) 

For collectors in Europe, I have a handful of Mojo castings ready to ship in the Netherlands. The Tassel castings are also arriving faster than expected, yay! If you reserve your copy now, I will probably have your casting ready to ship in 4-6 weeks. 
 
You can find ordering information and PayPal buttons for Tassel and Mojo on the Sculpture Shop page

A beautiful dark dapple grey by the amazing Nikki Button. Don't you just love how Tassel looks with 'clothes' on? So sweet. :)

Don't forget to order your own unpainted Tassel before October 31. If you want this one by Nikki (yeah who doesn't), act fast. You can find her auction here on MH$P until Wednesday.

Tassel released!


Woohoo! Tassel is now available for ordering, you can get your copy in the Sculpture Shop page.

UPDATE 2020/11/2: Edition is closed! Here's the original sales info, for reference only.

~*Tassel*~ 
   
Classic Friesian Mare
7.5 x 6.3 inch (19 x 16 cm)

*Edition is closed*
Available to order until October 31 2020

Tassel is a frisky Friesian mare, happily bouncing around, strutting her stuff. Although her forelegs are off the ground, she has been designed to stand sturdy without a base, and is being cast with a special technique to make her stand even more secure. This is a very special piece for me, and I hope she will bring you as much joy as she brought me while sculpting. Tassel is full of charm and little details that will make you look at her again and again.

Tassel measures 7.5 x 6.3 inches, or 19 x 16 cm, larger classic scale. Professionally molded and cast by Mountain View Studios, hollow cast in white resin with wire reinforcements.

I can't tell the exact time your order will be ready to ship. It depends on too many factors, like how many orders are ahead of your order, how busy they are at MVS, and of course your location. MVS usually ships within 3-4 weeks.

I met Whistlejacket!


The enormous painting of Whistlejacket (George Stubbs, around 1762), is probably the most famous piece of realistic equine art ever made. The pose is clearly inspired by classical rider portraits, but Stubbs did everything he could to make the stallion look real. You can almost feel the tense muscles in his hindquarters and the soft skin around his armpits. Amazing. And this was achieved in a time when photography didn't exist! Scroll down to the last photo to see how...

He's huge! Much bigger than I expected, almost life sized.

Stubbs knew his dapple greys. So detailed!

Look at the grey mare! This man loved horses.

Stubbs dissected horses in his workshop, hence the stains on this preliminary sketch. His book on horse anatomy has been (and still is) a great source of information for equine artists.
