A typically charming Beatrix Potter creation, Squirrel Nutkin is an impish red squirrel who lives with his brother Twinkleberry—and his many cousins—in the woodlands at the edge of a lake. The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin plots the adventures of our bushy-tailed hero and his narrow escape from Old Brown owl.

Using the linework from Potter's original illustrations, this charming garden feature comes to life. Choose from hot cast bronze or cold cast bronze and enjoy this handmade literary statue that will bring joy to your outdoor spaces for years to come!


Where's the best place to install my Squirrel Nutkin garden sculpture?

There's plenty of opportunity to be creative with the placement of your Squirrel Nutkin garden sculpture. Whether it's nestled within a woodland area to recreate the scenes from Owl Island in Beatrix Potter's famous tale, on a stand positioned on your patio or decking area for maximum visibility, or even on a bookshelf to be enjoyed indoors when the garden is no longer in use during the winter months. The possibilities are endless!

It's worth considering garden’s flora and plant life, too. As with all Beatrix Potter creations, Squirrel Nutkin is inspired by the by charming characters and natural landscape of the English countryside, so it's fitting the your garden setting reflects that environment.

Is a cold cast Squirrel Nutkin sculpture safe to install outside?

Although a cold cast sculpture is fairly robust—after all, the technique is used in the creation of large fiberglass boats—you do need to be a little more careful with their placement as they will not survive any kind of blunt impact. Position your cold cast sculpture away from older trees or anywhere it’s likely to topple over onto a hard surface. Squirrel Nutkin is hardy, resourceful character, but his cold cast adaptation does need to be taken care of!

How can you tell the quality of your Squirrel Nutkin bronze garden sculpture? 

You'll feel a reassuring weight and solidity to your Squirrel Nutkin sculpture, the first true indicator of its quality. A hot cast sculpture is made using pure molten bronze which will be immediately apparent when holding the garden stature in your hands.

You can also perform a simple tap test to check the quality of the bronze. If you strike a hollow place on the sculpture with a wooden dowel, true bronze will produce a satisfying ring, assuring you of its authenticity.
