Flighty Bird


Bird Sculpture

Flighty Bird is a sculpture carved in Ancaster Limestone.  The piece of stone had lovely colouring, showing mottling and striations, telling of its formation millions of years ago, with varying deposits and layers of sediment.  This bird carving was inspired by the many wild moorland birds here – they lie so still, quiet and well camouflaged that you almost tread on them, unaware of their hiding place, but just in time they dash out from cover with a clatter of wings and screaming calls.  I have many times leapt out of my skin, startled and surprised by their sudden flight.
