GUY CRANSTON

Being a member of a diverse and creative family, Guy has been influenced by art and artisans all his life – his love of crafting pieces with wood came from many hours amongst the sawdust and wood chunks in his father’s workshop, and his birds are a natural progression over many years

Capturing humour, character, mannerisms and movements each sculpture, crafted from pine and thousands of individual brightly coloured wire feathers,  has a life of its own, tells a story, and marks a fleeting moment.

“I truly know of no other artist in the world who does what I do. I love working on each and every piece, and many make me laugh out loud. Beyond anything else, these pieces unfailingly make people smile”

Guy’s birds have found homes all over the world.
