Jankowski Weathervanes

When I left school at the age of 15, I went to learn all about building the frames for racing motor cycles.  Throughout my working life, I have worked with metals and I now work mainly in copper and brass, creating fountains, weathervanes, signs and other decorative  items for the garden

One of the first commissions I received was to produce two weathervanes for the Welsh Development Agency for their new building in Machynlleth, one with Welsh letters, one with English letters.  Below is a picture of the architect, the builder and the client and yours truly with the Welsh weathervane.

Not surprisingly, since I worked in industry, my family and I have always lived in Birmingham until a few years ago when we made the break and came to live in mid-Wales.  We now live in what must surely be one of the most beautiful places in the British Isles, if not the most beautiful place in the world!  In case you're wondering, that's one mile from Lake Vyrnwy in Montgomeryshire.

Living on the Berwyn mountains I get to see nature at its best and a lot of my work is inspired by what i see from the window of my workshop I particuraly enjoy the lines and shapes in the trees and attempt to add these to my work.

I also work with schools where the children teach me new ways of doing things, this is a great deal of fun.

Individual Designs
We offer individual weathervane designs to suit pastimes, hobbies & interests, etc. There is a wide choice of letter styles and adornments.

Each piece is hand made and built to last; the spindles are made of stainless steel. All the vanes are secured to the spindles to prevent wind lift.

Mountings are of solid brass and can be made to suit individual requirements
