What a stunning sculpture!
This adult Kingfisher has been captured at the moment of feeding its baby a delicious fish as it sits amongst the reeds.
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 birds are made from solid foundry bronze, with a hand finished patina. This piece stands 25cm tall, is 14cm wide from wing tip to tail tip and weighs just over 615g.
This is a limited edition piece - one of 100 .
Each piece comes beautifully boxed with a certificate of authenticity. The certificate also includes information about the artist and the edition number .
