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.
