If you’re looking to add some fairy magic to your garden, here’s Bracken. She is a unique garden fairy , made by me in my Sussex studio, using stainless-steel and copper wires.
She’ll make quite an impact as she measures approx. 109cm from her wing tips to her toes, and seated, she is approx. 54cm high, with her outstretched leg measuring approx. 70cm long.
Her hair copper hair will gradually darken the longer she is exposed to the elements, and her stainless-steel body will retain its sparkle in the sunlight.
She will sit given the right setting, but I would recommend securing her somehow, as she is pretty heavy.
You are welcome to visit my studio to collect Bracken, and I’m sure she’d turn a few heads if you sat her in your car seat, (seat belt on of course!) If you are not local, then I can recommend an excellent courier, (which would be at your own expense).
Please feel free to message me if you have any questions.
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.
