A new rooster

 I make more roosters than anything else, and this one is one of the few that have been produced without using an axe for it's neck; half a spring tyne from a harrow has done the job instead.

Little Nut Tree

I suspect that the humour here will be lost on my French friends, but this tree is festooned with 'nuts' or ecrou.

Rooster and Snake

My response to a request for a contemporary rooster with a bit of drama.

New Season's Vulture

 My vultures always sell well, so I've created a new one; I couldn't find a sink trap for the neck, so I have used the ironwork from an ox yoke instead.

A pickaxe and small pair of garden shears are the main parts of this swift.

An attempt to keep things simple. The legs are old blacksmith tools, the bodies are harrow tines, and as you can see, the heads are pitchforks. The taller antelope stands just over a metre high.
