What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Definitely Not a Bird Guy

Anthony Theakson

Today’s wonderful artist was sent to me by my friend A.D., and as soon as I saw his work, I understood why she shared it. These are the magnificent bird sculptures by U.K. artist Anthony Theakston.

While Theakson is clearly very into birds, he makes his gorgeous avian creations in a former piggery. Yep. Turns out that’s a real word. The artist splits his efforts between ceramic and bronze sculptures, and I don’t think I could possibly choose a favorite medium. They’re both so beautiful and unique.

But though his art almost exclusively focuses on birds, the artist prefers not to think off himself as a bird sculptor. Instead, Theakson says he’s just inspired by birds’ naturally-sculptural elegance. Bird guy or not, I truly adore his Art Deco-style lines and his luxurious, hand-crafted finishes.

You can follow Anthony Theakston on his website and on Instagram and Facebook.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous. And very much reminds me of this artist, who I knew quite well when I lived in the same far northern village for many years. She carves moose and caribou antler. I’m not sure you’ll find enough online to make a post though 😦 She’s so successful I don’t think she even has a website, let alone an insta account, because she doesn’t need them.
