Commission your very own cute owl.
He will measure approx. 30cm from wing tip to tail tip, and he will be sculpted using stainless-steel wire. Even though he will be much smaller than the life-sized sculpture he is modelled on, he will have just as much character and detail.
From his meticulously made ‘feathers’’, to his wired talons, he would make a wonderful and unique gift.
Please allow 2-3 weeks for me to create your owl and I will contact you with a current time frame when you order.
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 protected]
