A Flight of Avocets
A spectacular contemporary garden sculpture, giving the appearance of the Avocet soaring through the skies.
Standing at just over two meters tall the design was inspired by a bird that I made many years ago in a woodwork class at school which still sits proudly on my Mum’s mantle-piece above the fire.
The mirror polished stainless steel birds are mounted atop an oak post / Skylon, inspired by the huge Skylon that made such a dramatic sight on the South Bank, London at the 1951 Festival of Britain, its something that’s fascinated me since I was young.
It’s a bespoke sculpture with the Avocet available in a range of materials & surface finishes along with three designs of Oak post.
• Birds, mirror polished stainless steel
• Oak Skylon design posts Height 200cm
