About the Sculpture

This woodcock bronze was originally carved from a single piece of lime wood. This limited edition bronze has been mounted in two different ways. An alternative to the example here can be seen on the “Woodcock” page.

Inspiration

The woodcock is rarely seen, and often, if they are sighted, it is when they have been accidentally flushed.
“I carved this woodcock after a particularly heavy snowfall in Kent.  I noticed that at dawn and dusk, woodcock were  taking off from a particular part of the road and disappearing into the woods nearby.  It later became clear that this part of the road was where a puddle often sat.  It was likely that the woodcock, unable to feed or get water from their normal home in the woods which was frozen and snowy,  had ventured out to the road for water and food in the muddy soil residue.”
