These beautifully sculpted birds perch watchful over their jars of treasure below. These art works are best explained further in the artist's own words;

"During an emotional period following the death of a friend, the terrorist attacks, Brexit and other more personal hurdles, I looked for ways to deal with these oppressive thoughts and feelings of sadness and fear through my work.

The initial idea for the vessels were to represent funeral urns. This developed into the idea of canopic jars, to store the vital organs of the deceased.

The work has evolved in such that they now store and protect feelings....Sadness, pain, fear, hope and joy. Guarded by the ever watchful sentinel"
