I’m so pleased with this lovely group of ducks, from mum keeping watch for her brood, to each little duckling with their own cheeky character. Who wouldn’t want this happy family gracing their own garden?
These charming sculptures have been hand-made using stainless-steel and copper wire, meaning they won’t rust and will be perfectly happy outdoors all year round.
I have created each piece using only photo references and a few simple hand tools, and all of my creations are made without a pattern and as such, are completely unique.
This set is – Mother duck and 3 ducklings.
Postage is Special Delivery signed for, as the whole set is quite heavy.
If you would like to purchase ducklings separately I am happy to make these to order for you, and they are priced at £65 each, plus p&p. Please message me with your requests. Gill x
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
