This is really two sculptures placed together; The last time I made a set like this, someone bought just the nest and I sold the heron to another customer some time later. This set has been created for a local exhibition and may well stay together when it is sold. Ironically, the nest was about twice as much work to make as the heron. in this example, the eggs are boules, but I have used white pebbles in the past, and blown goose eggs would be suitable too.

People keep giving me old agricultural implements so that I can use the parts for my sculptures, and these horsedrawn ploughs were no exception. For an experiment, I decided to make something with them, taking photos as I worked, so here goes...
Four plough handles have been used to form the legs of a foal; it's useful here to have a variety of ploughs to work with so that the legs don't all look the same, although one of them had to be extended using a hammerhead, as it wasn't long enough!
