The Avocet sculpture is one of my latest pieces. Standing at just over two meters tall the piece was inspired by a bird that I made many years ago in a woodwork class at school which still sits proudly on my mum’s mantlepiece.

.

After many hours refining the curves, going through numerous tail designs, trying to get it to balance with the body I finally achieved a design that I was happy with. The piece is cut by laser, a process that accurately replicates the perfect curves of my drawings and can be produced in stainless steel or mild steel.

.

The piece is mounted atop an oak post. There are two designs, a tapered verion and the Skylon inspired by the Skylon posts are inspired by the huge Skyoln that made such a dramatic sight on the South Bank, London at the 1951 Festival of Britain, its something that’s fascinated me since I was young.  I’m currently working on a version for a client that will have a polished stainless steel post. This is a bespoke piece and size and materials can be specified to incorporate your ideas.

Dimensions

Materials  |  Delivery |  Prices

The sculptures can be made from either mild steel or stainless steel.
.

Mild Steel, this is left to oxidise natrually with the rusted finish continually evolving with time to form a rich warm patina.

.
Stainless Steel, unlike steel and aluminium, stainless steel doesn’t corrode when exposed to the elements. A variety of surface treatments can be applied from brushed, to satin to the highly polished mirror finish.
