Snow buntings are large buntings, with striking `snowy' plumages. Males in summer have all white heads and underparts contrasting with a black mantle and wing tips. Females are a more mottled above. In autumn and winter birds develop a sandy/buff wash to their plumage and males have more mottled upperparts. Globally they breed around the arctic from Scandinavia to Alaska, Canada and Greenland and migrate south in winter. They are a scarce breeding species in the UK, in Scotland, making tham an Amber List species. They are more widespread in winter in the north and east when residents are joined by continental birds.
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.
