The Egrets are one of the best examples of how the modelling and design skills of the two sculptors combine with mastery of the bronze casting process. Here we see the confluence between inspiration and technique. The birds were hand modellled in wax and cast directly into bronze. Their wings are deeply textured open and yet light. Their poses interlock and the reeds of the riverbed brush against their extended wings. The whole effect of the light catching the texture, dappling the ground below, adds movement and complexity to the sculpture. The sculpture was a joint project of both sculptors.
