Drawn from Nature

Artist Bud Bullivant sketches the delicate beauty of nature, not with a pencil and paper but with strands of 16-gauge steel wire. Here, his unique talent has captured a delicate bird on the verge of taking flight from her driftwood perch. The sculpture's three-dimensional character gives it a sense of life, its appearance seeming to change from every angle. Each of these sculptures is a one-of-a-kind work of art, with unique variations in the driftwood and shape of the wires that give each bird a unique personality for you to enjoy on your desk or in a sunny window. Handmade in Princeton, Minnesota.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“I gravitate toward wildlife themes that are as rich to read as a chapter book.”

Bud Bullivant comes from a long line of storytellers, and he grew up listening to familiar tales being told again and again, each time with flourishes or embellishments that were unique to the teller. He's also had a love of nature from an early age, and as he explored the great outdoors, he found his own twist on storytelling. Instead of words, he uses carefully twisted wire to capture fleeting moments he has witnessed in the wild. Looking at his artwork, the viewer's imagination starts to fill in details of what is going to happen next, essentially creating a story that will be unique to every person who sees it.
