Wise Owl of Water Hall

The thing we loved most about Shaun was his ability to interpret our wishes together with his enthusiasm to create a truly unique feature for the house we had been renovating.

We are keen birdwatchers and love Barn owls, which we are blessed to see often in Norfolk and wanted a Barn owl relief on our new huge front door.  We had a couple of meetings to discuss our requirements and Shaun came up with some sketches, after which we gave him the “go ahead”.

Although the sketches were lovely, we were blown away by the finished work. Shaun’s artistic talent is second to none, the intricacy of the work is incredible. We defy anyone to walk up to the door and not want to stroke the feathers, it is such a tactile piece. It’s not just us that love what Shaun has created, we’ve had delivery drivers ask if they could take a photo, so they could share with their families, It truly is a masterpiece.

We are hoping this year that Shaun will take up a second commission for us and can’t wait to see some more of his creativity in our garden.
