Upright Heron Sculpture

Upright Heron Sculpture

Reviews (20)

Add some character to your garden with this stunning heron sculpture.

This majestic sculpture is a perfect feature for every garden. It is made using recycled metal oil drums and has a protective coating suitable for outdoor display. It is highly detailed to bring out the true character of this distinctive bird.

Made in Zimbabwe, used steel oil drums are cut using a hand- operated guillotine and then hammered into shape. The framework is then welded together and then components are attached to it to create the individual designs. The sculpture is then dipped in lacquer to give a protective coating.

Due to the British weather and the material of this product, it is advised to continue to care for this with additional varnish once a year

5 stars An Early Christmas present Written by

Bought for my husband for Christmas as he's been looking at the sculptures all summer during visits to various NT properties. Had to give it early as it arrived in a very large, sturdy box (impossible to hide) and packed with great care - all of the more delicate pieces of metal around the head and tail were undamaged. The finish looks lovely and as we have no pond we have placed it in a raised flowerbed, making it a great centrepiece for the garden. No problems with it being blown over despite some very windy weather during its first week in situ. We haven't needed to anchor the feet, simply pushing them into the ground slightly. Very pleased with this purchase - a beautiful sculpture that adds much to our garden.

5 stars Happy customer Written by

I bought online having not seen one before so was a bit worried as it was a present for someone who knows exactly what they like and I'm happy to say they loved it and it has been pegged by the pond straight away. As I hadn't seen it before, I opened it to check they would like it which was fortunate as the price had been left on. Not a big point but one which might have damped the gift receiving so perhaps best to check any purchases before giving away.

5 stars Beautiful Written by

I bought this for my parents pond and it just looks beautiful, they are delighted

5 stars Silver wedding present Written by

Bought this large heron for our friends silver wedding present as they have just revamped their garden and this was perfect. It arrived really well packaged ( I was worried it might be damaged being long and slender) and was even nicer than the picture! Yes it might need supporting or his feet buried in soul/ stones but our friends were really happy and I like him so much I might even purchase the smaller one for my garden!

5 stars Lovely Written by

Very pleased with the two I purchased, yes they are lightweight but can sort that out easily, going to purchase smaller bending one next have had really good comments!

1 stars Large upright heron sculpture far too light to with stand any wind Written by

Item arrived today very in substantially packed in a broken cardboard box. It took nearly 3 weeks to arrive. Sculpture very light weight no plinth to stand on and would blow over in the slightest wind.

5 stars Beautiful sculpture Written by

The pair of herons (upright and stooping) are beautiful sculptures made of recycled metal and are very realistic in the pose This was one of a pair purchased as a wedding present from my mother to her granddaughter. The lucky couple were delighted with them and they have taken pride of place in their garden. As my mother is 100 years old it is a gift that will also be a keepsake.

5 stars Lovely souvenir Written by

It looks lovely by my pond and looks surprisingly naturalistic. The bird's head is angled so it has the same 'knowing' expression as the real bird though luckily my goldfish are safe from this one! The website says the heron can stay out all year round and it's possible but not essential to respray with exterior varnish - so I hope this feathered friend will be with me for a long time as a souvenir of our visit to Beningbrough Hall.

5 stars Elegant and attractive garden sculpture Written by

I bought this large heron sculpture for my husband's birthday. He had admired a similar one at a NT property. He is absolutely delighted with it and keeps looking at it and remarking on it. We only have a small garden, but the heron doesn't look out of place - and it hasn't frightened the birds away! We particularly like the fact that it is made from recycled metals and has given work to some talented African artists.

5 stars Stunning addition to my garden Written by

I have been searching for a heron sculpture that would fit in with my naturalistic planting around my pond and this is just perfect. It looks stunning, reflects the different light in the garden throughout the day and even better is made of recycled material. The price represents good value too. Already it has been much admired and I am just delighted with it.

5 stars Lovely sculpture Written by

We bought two standing herons, one stooping heron and one small heron and arranged them in a group in our garden- they look lovely and elegant, and quite 'realistic'. They need anchoring with something to stop them blowing over in the wind.

5 stars Majestic heron Written by

Very impressed with the heron. It's a a very good size and quite realistic. It came well packaged and arrived promptly.

5 stars Nearest bird to stork Written by

I purchased heron for my son's birthday as he and his wife were expecting baby ( who arrived 5 minutes before his birthday). He has it in his sitting room as says it is looks so good as a feature!

4 stars Gorgeous, but peg it to the ground! Written by

Beautiful and well built, lovely to look at without sticking out too much. Only problem is that every time the wind picks up the heron falls down. Long tent pegs tend to do nicely

4 stars Good quality product Written by

Heron is well made and modelled well. Would help if pegs were supplied to secure to ground which would stabilise in strong wind
