What a beauty! This barn owl looks like it has been captured at the moment of taking off to go in search of food.
Designed by Michael Simpson who studied in Staffordshire and was inspired by the traditions of Stoke on Trent. As a result of this he works in clay for his initial modelling, unlike most bronze artists who use wax.
The owl is made from solid foundry bronze, with a hand finished patina. It stands 9.8cm tall, is 8cm wide from wing tip to wing tip and weighs just over 90g.
This is a limited edition piece - one of 250. .
Each piece comes beautifully boxed with a certificate of authenticity. The certificate also includes information about the artist and the edition number .
