I have created this dainty doe sculpture to represent the moment she stops grazing, as she is alerted to a noise in the woods, and she would make a stunning addition to any garden.
She is made using stainless-steel wire, over a welded stainless-steel frame, and she will keep her good looks for many years to come.
The internal support rods protrude from three of her legs, allowing them to be pushed into the ground to secure her.
She measures approx. 133 cm high to the tips of her ears, and approx. 80 cm long. (Body length).
You are welcome to arrange collection from my West Sussex studio, or I am happy to deal with your courier if you wish to arrange one. (I can give you details of an excellent courier, should you require one).
Hi I’m Gill and I have a love of nature and a need to create. I originally honed my wire skills over many years making jewellery and tiaras, but I had a yearning to make larger more expressive pieces, that importantly had a life of their own.
I work in my Sussex based studio, using mainly stainless steel wire straight from the roll and this means that my sculptures are suitable for both indoors and out. With the outdoor pieces in particular I like to make larger, life-sized pieces and this led to my learning to weld in order to create a support framework. A bit of a change from my tiara days!
I take each sculpture through a creative process, which inevitably leads to a stage where I’m unhappy with my progress. Fortunately, this is usually closely followed by a breakthrough, when a spark of life takes hold of the piece, and a new creature is born!
As well as the pieces you see here in my shop, I also take on commission work and I’d be happy to discuss your requirements. You can email me directly at email@example.com.
