Bespoke Weathervanes

Weathervane photo weathervane photoA couple of different bespoke weathervanes we’ve designed and produced recently – both showing all the family pets! We love the action show of the dogs being put in their place by the cat – a difficult design to achieve while keeping the breeds (Labrador, Pointer and Spaniel) recognisable too. The other design was more straightforward to create as the animals are a little more relaxed, having the bat beneath the bar with wings painted brown was the customer’s idea and we think it’s worked so well, really unusual and definitely stands out.

A great gift for anyone who loves their menagerie of pets!

Bespoke Swinging Sign Kingfisher Design

Kingfisher sign photo Kingfisher sign photoThis bespoke swinging sign shows a beautiful Kingfisher sat on a branch at the waters’ edge, hoping for something to eat. When the customer contacted us asking for a bespoke swinging sign for her property, ‘Kingfisher Cottage’, I was reminded straight away of a holiday cottage we stayed in a few years ago on the bank of the river Esk, where we watched four Kingfishers following a group of Otters up and down the river, obviously after some left overs. Our customer did not have a clear idea in mind as to how she wanted the swinging sign to look, so I just drew a Kingfisher in a scene as I remembered it from our holiday in the north east, with Reeds growing by the waters’ edge and branches overhanging. A really enjoyable one to do and we are delighted with the finished sign.

All of our swinging signs come with a bracket to mount to a wall, post or other suitable vertical surface. The sign is connected to its bracket using bolts fastened with nylock nuts, so it is very difficult to remove once in place.
