Drake Eider in coloured copper wires. This bird is 31cm tall and 40cm long from bill to tip of tail. Armature is galvanised steel with ivory, green, gold, rose gold and black There are a couple of strands of iron wire in the crown which will gradually turn a soft brown.
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.
