Rustic Birdlets


Rustic Birdlet - garden sculpture

Every band, line, swirl and mark combine to enliven and make each bird unique.  These Birdlets are plain and simple in style, each carved from a solid piece of colourful Yorkstone with distinctive natural iron ore elements running through.  Birdlets are contemporary in feel with a rustic beauty.

When visiting the quarry I select a certain number of stones with obvious colour and marks, in addition to my larger blocks.  These I store especially for a time when I carve Birdlets, and Little Birds and other pieces where I feel the rust patterning will enhance the work.

I’m particularly fond of this pair – it looks like the Birdlet looking upward is showing off his colourful front, and the rather shyer bird above is blushing from (or enamoured by) the sight!
