Handmade wire Blackbird on spade or fork
Collections will be from the Joanna May Gallery in time for Christmas — there’s also potential for local delivery by arrangement.
David is based in Dorset and has been a self-employed artist for a number of years; his work can be found in galleries nationwide. Although, originally trained in ceramics, David has been inspired by his interest in garden design and wildlife to work in galvanised woven wire to produce animal and bird sculptures of varying sizes. These include owls mounted on blocks of wood, hares captured mid-leap and wandering pheasants. The sculptures are suitable for display in the garden all year round, where the silvery grey colour of the wire softens the lines of the finished pieces and is contrasted naturally by foliage.
