Streamside Sculpture Trail


Kingfisher Sculpture


I carved the Kingfisher specially for the Streamside Sculpture Trail which is currently showing at RHS Garden Harlow Carr and runs throughout June.

Do you remember the  first time you saw a Kingfisher?  There’s usually just a flash of blue and sometimes you hear their call.  My very first sighting was like that, though the second time, a Kingfisher perched on an old bare branch overhanging the water and sat for some time before diving.  I was transfixed and didn’t dare move my binoculars.  I remember it so vividly and it still brings a wave of excitement.

      Ellen thankyou – sometimes I wonder if pieces end up with the look I intended, really sometimes it is as much as can be achieved to get a likeness, or carve accurately! The beak on Kingfisher was a challenge and I wasn’t quite brave enough. Next time!

    and if you didn’t live so far away I would own one of your pieces.

      Oh, thanks – it is a tremendous thing that I can receive at least your comment and appreciation, and that I can post a pic for you to see, even though seas separate us.
