More About Artist Mark Stoddart

With this design, Mark has captured the contentment of Motherhood. The stance of the Mother Hippo immediately shows the protectiveness of the parent whilst the face gives the feeling of a proud parent. The baby is sleeping, snuggled beside its happy Mum.

The glass representing the water is secured onto the Mother and baby in two places, the glass is protected from the bolts by handmade PTF gromits with particular details to safety.

Glass Size: 54 inches x 36 inches

Mark Stoddart, International Designer

For over 30 years Mark has operated from his workshop in his Scottish homeland. Drawing his inspiration from a landscape that also inspired Scotland’s most famous literary son, Rabbie Burns, who was born in Ayrshire in 1759.

Mark has also been inspired during his travels around the world especially his visits to Africa where he has viewed animals in the wild and on nature reserves, forming the basis for many of his best selling pieces.

Mark exports to private collectors throughout the world and has recently sold to clients in the USA, Hong Kong, Monaco, Saudi Arabia and Japan as well as clients throughout Europe, Africa and Australasia. Each unique bronze sculpture makes a simple, yet powerful connection with its owner, by fusing timeless aesthetic appeal with day-to-day usefulness.

Mark’s tables fequently become part of the family. Over 70% are given a name as they are introduced into the household. It is not unusual for Mark to receive a letter from the new family member updating him of a new address or other family news. One fellow who regularly moves around the world with his new family, keeps Mark up to date with his latest location once he has safely settled into his new surroundings.
