About the Sculpture

This hand carved birch plywood otter is meticulously designed to fully exploit the beauty of plywood.  Bill considers his plywood sculptures very carefully to make the most of this interesting material. To see another of Bills otter sculptures, please see “Diving Otter“.

This piece is currently available, but if you have a particular size in mind, Bill can be commissioned to carve a similar sculpture to meet your needs. Please feel free to contact us to discuss a commission. For further information about sculptures carved from birch plywood, please click here.

Inspiration

“I have spent many hours studying otters in Scotland and they are still one of my favourite subjects for sculpture. Here I have tried to capture the fluidity of the otters’ movement in water while using the contemporary medium of plywood. When using plywood, the shape and design of the piece is very important.”
