The Sculptures of The Willow Make The Forest "Livelier"

The making of the sculptures using willow in a forest by an artist from North Yorkshore made many people amazed

Making sculptures are usually done in cities or in open or closed rooms. Most manufacture also uses common materials such as cement, wood, or other hard media. The works of the statues can also be enjoyed in person because they are placed in the crowd.

Different works of art were shown by an artist originally from North Yorkshire, England, Anna . She makes sculptures using willow as the main raw material which makes her work unique and amazing. Even if the statues were placed in the forest, it would make the atmosphere "more alive".

In her website , she tells us that a special steel frame was used for making large sculptures, then wrapped in willow and given a layer of wood preservative which serves as protection. This makes the statues that feel in the forest more durable and can be enjoyed in their beauty longer.

Based on her interview with My Modern Met, Anna has been in the art world using willow since 11 years ago when she took a carving course every weekend. The traditional skills she used made her discover techniques that she had never learned before. She also drew a sketch of the sculpture that would make in advance to find out as much detail as possible how to make it.

One example of her amazing work is the statue of a 9-foot tall woman who appears to emerge from the ground in the middle of the forest and is holding her bow and arrow ready to fire at any time. Anna has also created many other amazing works such as a flying eagle, a horse, a rabbit, a deer, and many others.
