sally matthews, pit ponies

A shoot for Hargreaves recently found more sculpture frolicking in their foundry.  As always, I loved being in that environment and working with all the staff.ponies-and-staff_014 The foundry had gained a commission to make a Sally Matthews sculpture of pit ponies for a museum in Wales, and they were extremely realistic – so a bit disconcerting to see them in front of the furnace!  Also an opportunity to do some staff portraits with Anthony Gormley’s Angel sculpture.  Which included the Managing Director Micheal Hinchliffe, and the two staff who made the mould of the Angel.ponies-and-staff_003ponies-and-staff_032
