Rabbit sculptures have been popular for centuries, and for good reason. Rabbits are not only adorable creatures, but they also symbolise fertility, abundance, and good luck. A rabbit sculpture we crafted from silver takes on a new level of sophistication. In this blog post, we will explore the beauty of the ornamental rabbit sculpture and why it would make a fitting addition to one’s living space.

The Art of Silver Sculpting

Silver is a precious metal that has been used for centuries to create beautiful works of art. Silver sculptures are known for their intricate details and smooth textures, making them a popular choice among art collectors. The process of creating a silver sculpture is a meticulous one. It involves a combination of traditional and modern techniques, including casting, forming, texturing, and polishing.

The Allure of Rabbit Sculptures

Rabbit sculptures have a timeless appeal that transcends generations. They are often associated with the Easter holiday, but they can be displayed year-round as a symbol of good luck and fertility. 

Through traditional silversmithing methods, we completed this rabbit sculpture, exploring the reflective surface of silver to depict intricate details of the fur, eyes, and rabbit’s temperament. Wearing flowers between its ears and holding a juicy carrot, the rabbit is a stunning work of art that is both elegant and playful. It can be displayed on a bookshelf, coffee table, or mantel, and it is sure to be a conversation starter.

Behind the Design

To create this rabbit sculpture, many different skills were brought together. With hand-texturing, the rabbit and carrot leaves bring sophistication to an ambitious level. The carrot, which has been carved from a piece of carnelian, is adorned with tsavorites, and can be removed from the rabbit’s paws, while cabochon rubies give life to its beady eyes. Finally, but not least, the rabbit sits on agate, conveying an icy wilderness entering the fringes of Spring. Our sponsor’s mark verifies the metal fineness which has been laser hallmarked by the Assay Office in London.

It is by no means easy to combine technicalities and artistic sense, so a great deal of patience was poured into the work for months. We paid attention to the proportions to bring about a rabbit that can be adored from all angles, yet timelessly elegant in a discerning interior space.
