Something a little different. Avocet in iron wire, slowly rusting from dark grey to brown to rust. This bird is 28cm tall and 37cm long from tail to tip of bill. It is a lighly wired sketchin walking pose. It will rust further over time.
I use a mix of wire in my sculptures, galvanised steel, iron, recycled copper and coloured coper and occasionally aluminium. Most sculptures are roughly life-sized and worked freehand. No templates are used, I work from life, often in the field.
