These astonishing sculptures are created by UK-based artist Helen Thompson aka Holy Smoke. They not only look animated but also contains a core message. These unique dog sculptures are meticulously handcrafted using wires, natural linen, and vintage textiles.


Layering scraps of materials. And using a limited palette to create fragile, often worn out textures with hanging threads and raw edges.

The artist captures the beauty of form, shape, surface, and variety of these canines whilst simultaneously exploring their inner nature. Rather than investing these animals with human attributes or endowing them with the task of conveying any symbolic or hidden meaning.

The sculptures are varied in sizes. From 20cm while in sitting position, and then to the highest being 60cm in height while standing.

Holy Smoke’s dogs convey recognizable human emotions, but in a somewhat purified or distilled manner.
