This piece has been quite a few months in the making. Our client wanted a Cornish Pilot Gig Weathervane.
Initially, a simple silhouette idea transformed under the hammers and skills of Nigel into a 3D work of art.
Each of the six rowers are seated on their benches, pulling their oars in unison as a crew. Their coxswain, hair blowing in the wind gathering her crew to face the wind and waves.
The sculpture has been galvanised to protect it from the sea air and has had a gentle mordant wash to temper the shine and create this unique understated piece.
Mounted through the slate roof on a bespoke top mount, we hope that both you and your guests enjoy the crews efforts to row into the wind for many years to come.
