‘Having Hope: Border Terrier Sitting’ perfectly captures the presence of this particular breed, dainty and attentive. The anatomy, described in broadly modelled strokes made in the original clay, is faultless, but the greatest impact is arguably supplied by Shaw’s extraordinary awareness and ability communicate a sense of the animal's emotions.


Jane asserts, ‘I must never tire from looking, observing and learning’. Her powerful style – dynamic and full of movement – mirrors this affirmation. All her pieces, small or large, reveal how she expressively handles the clay (before casting) with her fingers, as if painting with a broad brush.


Jane Shaw grew up in Gloucestershire and learnt to sculpt from an inspirational teacher. A confluence of her love of wildlife and passion for sculpture led to her creating highly emotive sculptures of animals. She exhibits and sells her work nationally and has a permanent display in her studio in Dorset.
