Why we love this product

A bronze sculpture with attitude

This stunning bronze sculpture is a playful, tongue in cheek reference to its very literal name. Using the Lost Wax technique, Kris cast the piece into bronze from real redundant tools. We love that these tools are given new life through this creative sculpture. The use of the hammer for the dog's head (literally) hits the nail on the head in zoomorphically looking like a dog. Its unapologetic rough edges and patination give this piece attitude and edge yet the playful aspect of its construction makes it all the more loveable and an added member to your family.

This chunky bronze terrier is full of character and personality and will make an impact wherever it is placed.
