One of the last projects I worked on before finishing for maternity last summer. This bespoke, gilded weathervane was designed based on photos of a customer’s dog, who had recently passed away. The Labradoodle was painted brown, and I gilded his paler highlights in 23.5 carat gold leaf, which as you can see stands out and sparkles beautifully when the sunlight catches it. As dog lovers we understood how important it was to get a piece like this exactly right, so were delighted to hear how happy the customer was with her weathervane. A great way to remember a beautiful dog!
