Description

Bespoke weathervane featuring the silhouette of a Brown Hare at speed. Created in 316 'Marine' grade stainless steel for a long corrosion resistant life.

Built to my own unique design and not available anywhere else. The finished design was laser cut from 3 mm thick stainless steel sheet and then completed by me in my own workshop.

The arrowhead design is inspired by ancient flint arrowheads with a feathered flights inspired tail design. The upper assembly pivots on a point contact bearing giving a smooth response in only a light breeze.

The cardinal markers feature stainless steel lettering of a clean simple design, the diameter across the cardinal arms is approx. 500 mm. The arrow measures approx. 700 mm from tip to tail and the silhouette has a length of approx. 500 mm from front foot to back foot.

The centre post is machined from solid 1/2" diameter stainless steel and extends approximately 630 mm below the cardinal arms.

The whole assembly weighs approx. 5 kg to 5.5 kg

Can be mounted direct into a hole drilled in a wooden post, pergola or ridge-board. Alternatively we can supply a simple bracket that allows the weathervane to be mounted to a vertical surface such as a gable end (see separate listing).

Custom designs also possible, contact me if you have something unique in mind.

Collection is welcome if you are nearby and would prefer.

Inspiration

A life long passion for engineering and creating things, plus British Wildlife. Hares are a common sight in the fields around us here in rural Lincolnshire. We often see them when out on the morning dog walk, they can be surprisingly bold and confident, not always the nervous creatures you might imagine.
