Birds – Ceramic Sculptures
Neil Dalrymple makes varieties of birds in ceramic stoneware clay. He makes sculptures of bird species which range from the little wrens, robins and kingfishers to the Golden Eagle. The smaller birds offer scope for Neil’s skills in creating their feather effects and bright colours as well as their delicate features.
