This quirky chicken has been made from UK grown willow
I create items to order providing you with a variety of options, the willow body in this example has been left with a looser weave to allow you weave in your own flowers , lights etc if you want to I also create the same bird with a denser weave which you can see in my other items
This bird has been created with a looser weave , with willow legs and feet and a metal bar to secure into the ground, the one that is in the image has been made with a lighter brown called old french it can also be made in traditional brown, a darker chocolaty or a redish brown.
The birds are approximately 40 cm height and 35 cm in length. the metal can be fixed into the ground or used with a base such as a slice of wood.
As I create this item to order, the willow needs to be soaked first this takes approximately 5- 6 days for the willow with its bark on
The time that this will take will depend on how busy I am so the it can me 1 - 3 weeks to make, If you have a time dependent order for a special occasion please contact me before ordering for a time estimate.
If you are in a hurry I can use a buff willow instead which takes 1 - 2 days to prepare but this doesnt have any bark on and so is better kept in doors or only go out in good weather if you wish me to do that please let me know when you order.
If you prefer a different position e.g pecking on the ground or prefer a obvious hen or rooster please let me know
Please note that each sculpture will have its own style and will be similar to the photo but not exactly the same as each is unique and one of a kind I also create bespoke items so if you would like a different type please contact me for a chat.
