Random Bird

Somehow as soon as I have finished making a sculpture our cat has to 'own' it. How the cat figured that the bird might make a good place to sit, I'm not sure, but in case you were wondering the bird's tail
is an axe head

Farmyard Goose

 This was a commission for  a french couple who retired to the Perigord which is famous for the production of geese. The goose is twice life-size and uses four shovels, two plough shears and a motorbike silencer in its construction.

 From the tall to the short! These chicks were created to go with a mother hen. Their bodies are metal boules, and the chicks simply push into the turf.

Taller Dancing Crane

 This is the third dancing crane, rather taller than the last couple at 2m 30cm high. I used thinner and rather more flexible leg metal in an effort to get the sculpture to bounce about in a breeze, so emulating the dance of the real crane. Just need a bit of breeze to see if it works!
