The work of James Doran-Webb is utterly breathtaking, especially his latest horse sculptures. Made to look as though they are galloping across the sandy beaches they have been displayed on, the sculptures are life-sized. James Doran-Webb manages to capture the true freedom and majesty of these creatures. Yet what makes them even more impressive is the fact that they are completely constructed out of salvaged driftwood.

Born in Birmingham, United Kingdom, and Based in Cebu, Philippines, James Doran-Webb boasts a background in restoration thanks to his parents livelihood. He was an accomplished antique dealer and cabinet maker before turning his attention to driftwood furniture. That soon turned into the striking sculptures such as the horses on the beach.
