With its squat, rounded body and distinctive parrot-like beak, the puffin is one of the UK’s most instantly recognizable sea birds, and this piece expertly captures the personality and charm of this fascinating creature. Hallam’s spare, flowing style lends the piece an intimate, relaxed feel which is ideal for the subject matter, providing ample evidence that Hallam is one of the finest wildlife sculptors working in Britain today.
