Deux 'Grands Ducs'

 When a french guy asked me to make a life-size 'Grand Duc' for him I began researching the kind of clothes that would be worn at the right era in history...luckily one of my other french clients told me that a Grand Duc is a nickname for an Eagle Owl, so I was back in my comfort zone.
The one on the right is on it's way to Holland, the other is here in France

Penny farthing

 Deviating from the usual animal subjects, this vintage-style bicycle was created at the request of a dutch guy who has a collection of my sculptures.
The only original bike part is the leather saddle, the wheels came from farm machinery, while the front forks are the handles from tree-pruning secateurs and the pedals are old brake pads from a Renault Clio

Jaure Lizard

 Another lizard, this one was for someone who took a shine to the first example. It is climbing on a low log, and I have used a selection of chainsaw and motorcycle chains plus a plough blade to bulk up the body.
