BEARDED VULTURE

Created for a solo exhibition at the Harley Gallery in 2022, this bearded vulture was inspired by Vigo, a  juvenile bird who flew over from the Alps and spent some month in the Peak District during 2020.  


Materials include:  skis, milk cartons, bike seat, brake levers, a biscuit tin, coffee stirrers and a paint brush.


I was working on this sculpture and the wild goat during the early stages of the Covid pandemic and documented the process on film.
