A part of the reason I started this blog was to highlight some of the artist who inspire my wood carving. James Doran-Webb is one of these artists with his sculptures made out of driftwood. The Birmingham based artist has been making these incredible creatures for years and these horses are one of his largest public works.

These horses are galloping at the Flower Dome of Gardens in Singapore and are made to represent the ‘Year of the wooden horse’. Each horse is made from more than 400 pieces of drift wood attached to a steel frame. The steel frame ingeniously gives the limbs the ability to move making the horse tactile playful sculptures. What do you think about these sculptures?

If you are interested in having a look at more of his work check out his catalog that has an amazing menagerie on display.
