Birds of a feather


Trevor Askin’s bronze sculpture Landfall (right) takes flight from his collection at Church Lane’s Toi o Tahuna Gallery.

Until the end of January, you can catch a glimpse of work which Askin calls “curvi-linear” – by the way the bronze appears folded and rounded. He uses a wax casting method called “Cire Perdue” that is made to last. Award-winning Askin makes his sculptures in his garden – as he’s done this for 30 years.

He also considers himself a “very amateur ornithologist” and is known for his bird sculptures.
