Barn Owl with Acorns: English limited edition bronze by sculptor Keith Sherwin: capturing a barn owl landing on an oak branch, poised before take-off: with presentation box and numbered limited edition certificate
There is an expression—the ‘jizz’ of birds—that indefinable essence of the bird within. In this limited edition bronze barn owl, sculptor Keith Sherwin has captured it here.
This is truly an owl of the autumn countryside, landing on an oak tree; the character is all there, as well as the vitality. Poised, captured at a moment in time, what the barn owl does next is imagined by the viewer, almost—but not quite—seen. That is the inherent magic of this bronze, which, despite its small stature, is cast in the manner of any major piece.
In a limited edition of 200, this lovely bronze, Barn Owl with Acorns, will be appreciated by all who love owls in particular, as well as wild life and art in general. Th piece is made in solid foundry bronze using the ancient method of lost wax casting. The design is finished by the art of patination where various acids are applied to the surface of the bronze and heat applied to create a deep rich brown patina. The bronze is then sealed with a special wax which further enhances the colour and protects the bronze for years to come.
It is 11.8cm wide, 8.3cm tall, weighs 145g grams, and will enhance any mantelpiece, side table or desk. It is beautifully presented in a printed box containing a signed certificate of authenticity. The bronze is engraved with the sculptor’s signature and limited edition number, matching the certificate enclosed.
