Door stops

My commissions are quite varied these days and include bird tables and door stops.
Here is a selection of the latter, made from antique flat irons and log splitters featuring handles that first saw service as fire tongs

Little Brown Bird

OK, you're right, I'm having a laugh...
Not my usual style, this piece was born from an interesting tree root that I picked up in the forest. After pressurewashing the dirt out of the roots, I fitted a steel base and added a slightly modified knife handle representing a songbird...I'll take it along to my next exhibition to see if it sells!

Created at the request of a french client who had already bought a Rooster (or should that be a Coq?) this hen is the usual mixture of garden tools including a small mattock for it's tail.
