British sculptor James Doran-Webb has been making beautiful animal sculptures for years now. At first, he used paper mache to create miniature sculptures and gradually started making driftwood furniture in mid 1999s. He takes years to collect fragments of driftwood from different coastal communities in Cebu and then assembles them meticulously to form horses, goats, lions, eagles and other animals. Every year in May, his latest creations are exhibited at the Chelsea Flower Show, London. He has also been awarded the Director General’s Award for the best trade stand, in 2013.

His unique visions and familiarity of animal anatomy help him a lot to turn found driftwood into a variety of animals and scary monsters. Recently, he exhibited his sculptures at SM Seaside City Cebu to give a sneak peak of London’s famous Chelsea Flower Show to be held in May 2017. All his creations are unique and inspiring, so we’ll be showcasing some of his best sculptures.
