Heron Fine Art Garden Sculpture


A custom created life-size Great Blue Heron is poised on one leg with his freshly caught fish dinner.

In excess of 1,500 individual copper feathers are hand cut and separately brazed into place one at a time. The inside skeleton is made of hand hammered copper which is then sheathed in sheet copper to represent skin for securing the feathers, just like a real bird.

Each heron takes on individual personality. This guy is proud of recent catch and ready for dinner.

Each hand cut feather is unique, as in nature, no two are the same.

Various heat concentrations combined with a custom hand painted patina process create the infinite color variations within the sculpture.

These colors will continue to evolve and change with time. Art which continues to paint itself becoming ever deeper and richer in color tones.
