My own Rooster

I thought it was about time I had a rooster of my own, so I made a base from a large wheel which had been salvaged from a sluice gate, added a hollow log and then created a 'boss' rooster to preside over the rest of the animals in the yard. He stands two metres tall and was finished in June 2009.

Porky Pig

Similar to my wild boar sculptures, the body of this life-size pig has been constructed from a collection of barrel hoops and stuffed with large pinecones.
The front legs and ears are gussets from a harvesting machine, and the buttocks are two shovels. A variety of other farm related tools make up the rest. September 2009
