Swan Sculptures

All 60 of the fabulous Swans of Wells flock were successfully sold at the Swansong charity auction. There were over 220 guests at the black tie auction dinner and hundreds more online and bidding on the phone, bringing in over £110,000 for the giant flock of stunning 5ft swan sculptures.

The swans have now make new nests in homes all over the country, including Kent, Surrey and Yorkshire, although many have stayed in the Wells area, much to the delight of their fans.
Most of the flock are now displayed outdoors in gardens, by lakes and patios, with a few nesting indoors in dining rooms, office foyers and bedrooms!

The swans below are listed in alphabetical order.  Please click on the artists' details to see more of their fabulous work.
