My studio backs onto open fields, where, if you’re lucky you get he opportunity to watch barn owls quartering the fields and hunting for mice and voles, it’s a rare opportunity nowadays, but just as the sun has set and the moon is rising and the stars are beginning to shine, in that afterglow moment, you can still see those silent, ghostly hunters gliding quietly above the grass. This piece is articulated, so there’s some movement that adds interest, it’s finished with hand forged finials and double strung on an adjustable 400 mm (16 inch) for presence and security.
