Nick Warfield, oh yes, regular readers may just start getting a bit tired of me throwing around this amazing human's name but quite frankly I just can't help it. Nick is an incredible artist who creates beautiful pieces of art using well, junk, this Bowerbird has bits of Nick's old car in it, amongst other great things like venetian blinds, a fan, a teapot and goodness knows what else. How cool is that. And not only does he make these stunning pieces out of rubbish, he creates characters every sculpture has an essence, a personality that is undeniable. And they are so perfectly proportioned it makes me weak at the knees.
Nick was recently commissioned by our local council to create this wondrous 6ft tall Bowerbird (and the beautiful entranceway) for the newly named Bower House Community Reuse Centre, a.k.a our local tip. And as if you couldn't tell from the pictures but this bird is ridiculously amazing, I was honestly gobsmacked when I first saw it. Hope you love it as much as we all do.
