Little Owl I (Stretching a wing)
I find little owls so charming. I set about a sculpture, and I soon realised that, as with anything that is charming, a single view is incapable of capturing the whole picture. Owl I (Stretching a wing) was my first creation as part of the Little Owl series. I began away from how we usually characterise little owls. They are often depicted as shrewd, but I wanted to capture their strength and their vigour.
