Sunset Seagull 2

Similar to one of my earlier sculptures, this seagull has been created from two large scythe blades, an axe, and the metal rim from an old wooden cartwheel. There is a spike welded to the bottom of the rim which enables the sculpture to be pushed into the lawn and remain freestanding.

Deer Family

A life-sized family of deer, which includes one with tall antlers as well as a youngster.
These continue to be popular in the Dordogne where there's a fair amount of hunting.

Bird of Paradise

Two leaf rakes and half a pair of tinsnips form most of this sculpture which hangs from a tree branch in mid-flight.

Two Vultures

Staying with the 'birds of prey' theme, two new vultures made from garden forks, scythes, shackles and the usual selection of whatever I could lay my hands on at the time.

Two Kestrels

A pair of kestrels, each catching a sloworm. These have been created from a selection of rotorvator blades and garden shears. Their legs are old spanners, and there is a couple of brushcutter blades in there as well.
