Noisy and gregarious, these cheerful exploiters of man's rubbish and wastefulness, have managed to colonise most of the world. The ultimate avian opportunist perhaps. Monitoring suggests a severe decline in the UK house sparrow population, recently estimated as dropping by 71 per cent between 1977 and 2008 with substantial declines in both rural and urban populations. Whilst the decline in England continues, Breeding Bird Survey data indicate recent population increases in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Variation you will never find two that are the same, All our sculptures are unique with slight variations in shape and colouring resulting in a truly stunning piece that is as individual as the client who orders it is to us.
This also extends (if chosen) to the wooden basses, they sit upon we only use reclaimed or naturally scored drift wood and each piece is chosen to match the character of the sculpture that has been ordered.
Bespoke projects and commissions we can undertake any sculpture that is not listed in our catalogue.
You can immortalise a favourite pet in clay, we can work from photos and supplied dimensions to get a realistic likeness. or if you require an animal in a specific pose/posture we can also accommodate your request
Natural Base materials some of our sculptures use natural materials for their bases such as hard woods or natural slate.
So with this in mind please understand there could be some variation as we cannot always source the same materials we do however make sure that every sculpture represents the same quality and finish as those pictured and matches it as closely as possible.
This dose however means that every sculpture is totally unique.
