Bird carver

Exeter, Devon


hand crafted, wood, birds


£60 — £400


I create hand crafted unique pieces that are inspired by the beautiful shape and colour of birds. I try to capture the spirit of each one with a characteristic posture, carefully sculpted beak or iridescent sheen on the wing rather than by feather perfect detail. They have hand coloured glass eyes and and are finished to a soft shine with wax after painting. I specialise in waders and sea birds which are mounted on locally sourced driftwood but pieces range from albatross to wrens.
