Guy Taplin's Birds

From 6 February to 16 March Messum's gallery at 8 Cork Street, London, will be showing over 60 of the latest works by Essex beach-combing artist Guy Taplin (CLICK). He spends hours scouring the shoreline at Wivenhoe for objects he can turn into amazing sculptures of birds. Shown is his Ten Flying Sanderlings Boat Panel, made from carved and painted driftwood. If he occasionally needs to buy extra bits, it's no hardship because his works fetch £30,000 each. CLICK for a BBC News article.
