The uncluttered simplicity of this work makes it a most striking sculpture. Peter leaves the confident fluid lines to do the work, resulting in a clean and elegant sculpture with a real wow factor.

This lovely piece is one of the largest sculptures we have from Peter this year. Other big pieces are Preening Stork and Exercising My Body.

Peter achieves the brushed effect of the feathers by stroking the stone with a blunt rasp. The shiny parts have been sanded smooth, heated and clear wax applied, then buffed up to a shine.

It is very easy to light sculptures with this matt white surface, so with clever use of spotlights you can enjoy it at night as well!
