Exhibitions // Sketches in Tyres

In 2017 I was thrilled to be accepted for the National Trust sculpture exhibition, ‘Oh Wise Owl’ at Beningbrough Hall. I decided to create a Sketch in Tyres that reflected the predatory nature of the owl and chose a pose of an European Eagle Owl about to strike with wings raised and claws forward about to pounce onto its prey. My intention was to keep an elelment of movement in the piece so it would move slightly in the wind. What a learning curve in armatures and the elements she proved to be !
