Bittern Finial

A hand carved Bittern in portland stone for a gate post

Bitterns are a rare native bird species which the RSPB brought back from the brink of extinction in the UK by careful management of conservation area wetlands and reed beds, primarily in Norfolk and Somerset. The client, who lives on the Norfolk coast overlooking the wetlands, has witnessed the decline of the species over his lifetime and wanted two sculptures to sit on top of the gate posts at the entrance to his property. Designed and sculpted in clay, then delicately carved in Portland Stone in our Somerset workshop.
