A Pukako, one of the most amazing birds from New Zealand.

I was lucky enough to see them on a visit a few years ago and vowed to make a sculpture one day to remind me of a fantastic trip. I hope to get back there before too long.

The bird is made from two varieties of willow to give the colour variations and has wire legs.

Caroline Gregson
Willow Sculpture Artist

I have loved and been inspired by the natural world since I was a child and the ability to work as a Willow Artist and make willow sculptures representing the essence of animals, birds and other living forms brings me great pleasure. I love to represent movement and vitality in my work. My willow sculptures appear to have just paused in their setting before they are ready to move on. One of the nicest things anyone has said about my animal sculptures is that you can always see where they are looking!
