Hot off the bench- Blackbirds Weathervane

For all those clients & friends who responded to our request to join LinkedIn, Thank you.

Big news: Two of our weathervanes have been selected to compliment The American Museum in Britain's opening of "The Compassionate Eye:  Birds and Beasts from the American Museum’s Print Collection". This exhibition will feature works by some of the great American artists from the mid-20th century. The show will run from 10th March - 1st of July 2012. See the museum's website for more details about the exhibition. This is a great excuse to visit Bath, see Claverton Manor and view our monumental weathervane of Liberty, commissioned last year by the Museum to celebrate the opening of the new Folk Art Gallery.

We have 3 weathervanes in the studio on the go ( as well as several spec peices in preparation for Art in Action): a goose in flight, a barn owl and a quintessential English weathercock.
Speaking of weathercocks, here's an antique English one that I adore...look at the true patina on it, and the wonderful rivets & bullet holes in the tail.

  1. Where did it get that bullet hole? In any case, it's a beautiful piece of art, indeed. Both that and the blackbirds would make great weather vanes up on the roof, or as some sort of ornamental display somewhere else.
