George’s Story

I started my working life on the 6th of January 1966 as an apprentice toolmaker in a small company making jigs and fixtures. For the next fourteen years I worked in engineering learning all aspects of tool-making. The following 35 years saw me working in sales, involved in the welding distribution and welding automation industries which allowed me to travel to over 40 countries worldwide.

I retired in December 2014 while working for Fronius UK (a subsidiary of Fronius International based in Austria) and decided I would build Fronius a gift to thank them for our time together. Combining the Scottish icon of the stag with the red colouring of Fronius equipment gave birth to the red mounted stag head which now hangs in the reception area of Fronius UK in Milton Keynes.

The reaction was amazing and I had many requests to make some more for various friends. It was from this that Hummingbird Sculptures was born. Much like the Hummingbird, known for its ability fly backwards, I was returning to my engineering background of making things with my hands.

Now a few years on, we have three different sizes of stag heads which can be clad in Harris Tweed or a clan tartan. We have sold hundreds of bespoke stags through a network of stockists and met so many lovely people along the way. This is just the start of our journey!
