In the Workshop today – Fancy Birds


Fancy Birds sculpture

Perhaps it is the powerful twisty gusts of wind that has ruffled the tail feathers of these two.   It has certainly brought me into the workshop to finish them, I’m sanding their surfaces smooth and the dust keeps blowing up in my eyes and I’m buffeted off-balance.

Fancy Birds – for their resplendent showy-offy behinds.

Some birds have complex feather adaptations for signalling, which they use in elaborate displays, and even the plainest birds have fascinating antics to make their message clear.  I love these evolutionary traits, they’re so expressive, extraordinary and magical –  I wanted this pair of stone birds,  Fancy Birds, to have some of these flourishes.
