Remarkable Horse Sculptures Created From Broken Driftwood

Remarkable Horse Sculptures Created From Broken Driftwood

British artist and sculptor Heather Jansch is the gifted individual behind these strong and iconic horse sculptures made entirely from driftwood. For roughly 15 years now she’s been masterfully creating these beautiful natural tributes to the four-legged beauties inside her own private property in the UK.

In 2000, she was able to realise that dream by purchasing her first home. Located high on the slopes of a steep wooded valley, she created a secluded sculpture garden a few moments walk from her front door, a place to house and display her pieces.

Twice a year she opens her property to visitors which all donations going to charity. Once instead they are greeted with a world of natural beauty, giant sculptures and wildlife.

Recently she’s been diversifying the materials she uses to construct her sculptures, creating limited editions using fine bronze instead of driftwood she finds on the beach.

Along with her eye-catching sculpting work, Jansch is also a prolific illustrator, often sketching and detailing her various ideas for new animals and designs.
