Owl Sculpture

I’m so lucky to have Owls close at hand, to watch and get to know.  Barn Owls have nested at my workshop and raised young, which has brought enduring pleasure and inspiration for sculpture.

The lane is filled with Tawny Owl activity as soon as light fades, and they are often to be seen on posts and in trees whose branches I walk beneath, calling and flying back to the steep, wooded hillside opposite.  Here, from the footpath I’ve seen the young in early summer, still white fluffy feathered, taking their first steps in the big wide world.
