Life-Size Driftwood Animal Sculptures by James Doran-Webb

British sculptor James Doran-Webb uses driftwood and recycled metal to construct remarkable, life-size sculptures of various animals. From horses and dogs to a lion and a deer, the artist has a vast collection of wooden animals, each boasting a uniquely textured construction.

Doran-Webb manages to manipulate his chosen materials to emulate the body and texture of his wild subjects. The knots, grooves, and rings on each piece of wood add to the visual value and life of each sculpture. Additionally, the sculptor most often reproduces the image of animals in motion, further heightening a sense of vitality and vigor.

Being that the artist has been creating his works, particularly working with wood, since a young age, he always felt the urge to give back. This year, Doran-Webb has launched a tree planting program, aptly dubbed 80,000 Trees. The artist’s ultimate goal through this personal endeavor is to plant 80,000 trees in Cebu, Philippines (where he is currently based) over the course of five years. The progress of this passion project can be tracked on his blog.
