Robert Angus Smith Sculpture

The sculpture was unveiled by the Minister for the Environment and Climate Change at the opening of SEPA's new building in 2013

bronze cat commission

Binky 2016 cat commission

Devastated by the sudden loss of our cat Binky (AKA Edward Lancelot Ozberry Blue-Fella) we asked Peter to undertake the challenge of immortalising him in Bronze.  Binky was the friendliest and most un-cat like British Blue, rather belying his Sunday best name, and the pose we asked for was a technical challenge which Peter surpassed beyond our expectations.  Exceptional service and communication throughout, we cannot recommend his work highly enough."


He has pride of place on the coffee table at the moment, but when we move to our new home (currently a shell essentially propped up by 8 poles which is a bit scary!), he'll take up residence on the former bar.


Thanks again for all your hard work
