About Guy Cranston

Being a member of a diverse and creative family, Guy has been influenced by art and artisans all his life.

A background in painting and woodturning led Guy to create his distinctive folk-art bird sculptures. Capturing humour, character, mannerisms and movements, each sculpture has a life of it’s own, tells a story, and marks a fleeting moment.

Guy develops his sculptures by cutting each bird from a block of pine, carving it into shape and painting the form. Each individual feather is inserted into the body base by hand. Legs and feet are created with wire, painted, attached, with the final touch being the addition of Guy’s signature bird band.
