Bird sculpture

This piece is called Fugol – a name which comes from the old English word meaning ‘bird’.  Fugol is carved in Serpentine – a stone from Zimbabwe known as Springstone.

Springstone is a very hard, iron bearing Serpentine, found in Tengenenge and has a reddish brown outer layer, with a much harder, close-grained heart, which polishes to this very beautiful black colour.  You can see the glow of russet just showing on Fugol’s wings.    I’m told that it is called Springstone because when working it, the chisel just ‘springs’ back at you!

Hope you can get to the Fair

‘October sees the return of London’s friendliest art fair, welcoming art lovers, art connoisseurs, and art novices alike to discover affordable art by thousands of artists under one roof. Our 112 participating galleries come from all over the UK and abroad, bringing their choicest selections for you to browse, buy, and enjoy’.

sounds good, doesn’t it?
