The sculptor, Beverley Drury, lives on the edge of woodland that slopes down to the River Aire in Yorkshire.
Her sculptures are made from a combination of up-cycled and new wire: galvanised, gilded, plated, enamelled and pure copper wire. Each one is unique and attempts to capture the fleeting pose, behaviour and character of each bird. The colours come from the wire itself and each bird is boxed and illustrated.
Prices reflect the time and the complexity involved in making each piece.

All the pieces shown are small, lightweight, and most are life-size or slightly smaller. Some are perched and will support themselves on any flat surface: others are flying and can be suspended from a hook. The mobiles of multiple birds circulate gently and naturally with changes in temperature and air movement.
