|BRIDGET M RANDALL
|Born 1950, South Africa
Bridget Randall has had a life-long interest in the arts, but despite having sketched and painted from a young age, it was only when she started to concentrate on sculpture that she found her true niche. This interest was refined when she started taking sculpture classes with Anton Momberg in 1983, which she was able to do while working part time as a biologist with her husband.
Bridget started producing bronzes in 1997 and has concentrated on this medium since then, usually working in plasticine or wax and having the pieces cast professionally. She generally produces pieces less than 50cm high but has produced larger works as well, notably a life-sized horse commissioned by Leo Baxter for his polo estate near Plettenberg Bay. A life-sized sitting warthog was commissioned by the Read Gallery. The edition of six has been sold out. She has produced 52 different bronzes in editions ranging from 1 to 30, a number of the editions have sold out. A series of ten horses were exhibited at the Francois du Toit Fine Art, Knysna in December 2005. As a result of this she received a commission to do four race horses on an 80cm base. Two of her sculptures have been used as junior golf trophies. Other commissions include two life sized otters.
