Life sized Grey Partridge in coloured copper wires. This bird is 17cm tall and 15cm long beak to tail. It is in walking pose with a curve and tilt to the head. Armature is galvanised steel with grey, brown, copper and silver coloured copper wires. Some iron wire in the body, legs and feet will fade to brown 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 completely freehand. No templates are used, I work from life, often in the field. Each piece is unique.
