Driftwood Horses


Now, here is some interesting art and quite unique, also. Yes, the horses you see in the photos are all made from driftwood. They are created by an English gal named Heather Jansch. She seems to be mostly recognized for her horses but, she does other animals, as well. She doesn't restrict herself to driftwood for she creates lovely pieces in bronze, also. Amazingly, I believe most of her work is life sized.

Nightmare I
I like this name!

I have heard of only one other artist, Deborah Butterfield, who produces driftwood horses. It is absolutely astonishing that anyone should create such art. These two women seem to have this medium conquered.
