If you are looking for that extra special lbronze Border Collie sculpture - for yourself, as a special gift or as a trophy or award then we have the perfect range to choose from.
Our Border Collie Series aims to represent the looks and working stance of a stylish Border Collie.
We can also provide engraved brass plates for award or presentation purposes on request.
Every handler wants a stylish Border Collie, one with the temperament and 'power' of a champion. The low head and tail carriage of Perfect Style and Perfect Pace are a mark of the dog's confidence and strength of character. This is a dog that will be gently persuasive with weak or 'light' sheep but which will, without undue fuss, stand steady and command the respect of those that initially challenge its authority. Fitness, speed and agility create a streamlined profile. A close handler and dog relationship is evident in the dog's rapt expression – listening and responding to its handler, as only this most exceptional and intelligent of breeds can continue to do, at great distances.
The McHardy Sculpture Company was launched by Joanne & Max McHardy in 1995 in Shad Thames in the shadow of London's Tower Bridge where we represented the work of young and established contemporary artists. In 2006, Joanne helped her father complete and publish his book ' Over the Hills and Far Away' telling the story of his unique bond with the Border Collie breed and the success and adventures he enjoyed by following his passion for sheepdog breeding and handling. Holly Bennett was one of the most successful artists in the gallery, with a focus on creating highly sought after animal sculptures. She was a natural choice to illustrate the book and to create the very first in the Border Collie Series by McHardy Originals. Now based in the countryside of West Sussex we continue to source and commission art for our clients - with a particular specialism on working dogs, horses and farming livestock breeds.
