We’ve Been Making Some Giant Bird Sculptures

Loading Giant Swift Bird Sculpture

Commissioned by Crown Estates, we have been building several giant animal structures. Each one is constructed from a steel frame, overlaid with willow, and the completed structures are currently on their way to their new home at the retail park in Rushden Lakes. Once complete, there will be three starlings on a bird table, two racing swallows, a swan, and a hare. The hare is 18 feet long, the swallows and swan have 10 foot wingspans, and these massive sculptures are borne on 5″ steel tubes, bent into a curve. They took 1,500 man hours to produce and are designed to reflect the re-generation of the former gravel pits site at Rushden Lakes.
