The Frogman Foundry is delighted to release the 11th sculpture in Tim Cotterill’s owl parliament!
My love of nature became the inspiration for the images I fabricated. Two distinctly contrasting concepts harmoniously coexisted in both my mind and my tiny work space. On the one hand, I created sculptural forms from the natural world, and on the other, I pushed the latest trends of motorbike design. Using many of the same materials, I challenged myself in developing new production techniques for both endeavors. The birds from my earliest childhood memories took form out of metal scraps from my latest motorbike metal modification. I sculpted owls reminiscent of my childhood forest adventures and images my mother had surrounded me with, capturing their form, grace, personality and noble demeanor.– Tim Cotterill
Heavily patterned earth tones transition from the back of its slender form to a marbled, milky patina. Searching for a target, Wallis gazes keenly at its surroundings, clearly embodying characteristics of the typical barn owl.
