Adopting one of the pack

They have captured hearts in no time at all. Aristo, Elea and Othello – the beautifully worked bronze dogs of our current Autumn/Winter Edition have already found their joyful new owners. The limited edition of just 36 pieces is unfortunately, completely sold out.

In response to the huge interest, we have asked the Hamburg based artist Irina Wege, to design three further dog sculptures – to be ready by the beginning of next year.

We will be following the creative process, from sketches to bronze casting, on our website – with impressions from the studio and workshop, short interviews and reports.

If you would like to adopt one of the newly modelled characters in advance, we will be glad to inform you at regular intervals – by email and with an accompanying photograph – to keep you up to date with developments.

For further information please contact our customer service on +44 1273 486 400.

Dogs are extremely lively creatures. Even the Hamburg sculptor Irina Wege rarely has them remaining in one pose for long. As a trained observer, however, the former student and master student of the Academy of Fine Arts, Nuremberg, has the gift of storing impressions in detail, delving deep into their innermost nature and capturing it in its perfect form in the studio

The Hamburg-based artist Jan Wege is a master of an old craftsmanship.

Make a wish

Individual form language is a trademark of the Hamburg artist Jan Wege. Ever since his childhood, the silversmith, who also works with gold, tombac, iron and stainless steel, has been fascinated by port facilities and industrial buildings. These archetypes are an inexhaustible source of inspiration, which he interprets in his very own unique way. Playful details disrupt straight lines, yet he prefers geometric-architectural forms and minimalist austerity. Despite their sculptural appeal, his works - jugs, tins, cups, warmer, candlesticks, vases - are intended for everyday use. Upon request we offer napkin rings from Jan Wege's workshop.
