Please see below for a selection of Weathervanes handmade by Nigel Wills here in Cornwall.
Refurbished sailboat weathervane
This weathervane arrived in three separate pieces, a beautiful replica sailing boat but in need of some tender care. Nigel carefully braised the broken pieces back together and the final result is stunning.
Fishing boat weathervane
Historically, this type of fishing boat was used by a relative of this client. Her husband commissioned this striking copper replica for his wife.it has cast brass cardinal points making for a striking gift indeed. This type of bespoke weathervane retails at approx: £250.
Similar to the fishing boat commission, this was a husband’s gift to his lady wife, who absolutely adores any giraffe. It was a difficult concept, but we eventually managed to get hold of a laser cut giraffe. Nigel used the heat from the welding gun to colour the metal in the distinctive animal’s markings. Perfect, she loved the result. A laser cut weathervane such as this will cost approx: £130-£150.
