Realistic willow animal sculptures - Handcrafted in Cheshire

Sculpture has always fascinated me and finding willow to use as a material has made it possible for me to become a full-time sculptor.

I make lots of different animals with pigs, chickens and herons being the most popular, but my passion is for horses: Shetland and Welsh ponies, Shire horse, Cob and even unicorns. The challenge is to capture the essence of the breed and suggest character, movement and sometimes power in the sculpture. Willow is great for making the elegant curves and unlike a solid material its open weave also casts interesting patterns.

Willow sculptures are brilliant for bringing art into the garden – the natural materials blend well , capture movement and create wonderful shadows which change continuously.
