Dragonfly and Bulrush Copper Sculpture

Hand sculpted in copper

Each piece is hand-made from pure copper and formed into a Bulrush mace with 3 slender leaves and a Dragonfly with a 15cm (6 inch) wingspan.

The Bulrush mace is plated in lead to create a contrasting colour to the copper and will oxidise to a whitish-grey patina.

A great garden gift, which can be pushed directly into the ground and looks perfect at the edge of a pond.

Height: 120cm



Made in Britain from an original design by Gary Pickles

A talented coppersmith, Gary has honed his skills have over many years, producing some remarkably beautiful pieces of work, reflecting the natural plant forms that have been his inspiration.

In a modest workshop in East Yorkshire, England, Gary has been producing his range of Copper fountains and sculpture since 1999. He has remained steadfast in his resolve to produce very high quality pieces, with the best materials and from original designs.

Through a process of annealing and hammering, very lifelike forms can be made from a plain sheet of copper plate. Where appropriate, all key joints are made using a specialist, hard solder, which makes a union stronger than the material itself. This enables the creation of a piece of sculpture, which may look light and fragile, but is in fact extremely resilient.

The copper is intentionally left in its natural state, to benefit from the constant changing patinas, building up over many decades. This process allows the fountain to blend perfectly into a garden, integrating, without dominating.
