I was very recently asked to show some of my bird sculptures at the Robert Bateman birthday fund raiser, I am honoured to be a part of this and absolutely said yes. Starting with the smallest first, on display was a: Wood duck
Large free standing chrome crow
Albatross in take off mode
Crow in a 3D nest on a counter weight base
Great blue heron
Crazy walking birdcage with wings, complete with bird in a nest inside
Also: 2 huge barn wood birdhouses with antique decoration, metal roofs, and old license plates, AND the piece that was the most fun of all, an antique country road mailbox customized for Mr. Bateman to receive his birthday cards.
Doing some more creating for entries for the Sooke Fine Arts show, this project is one of my life size mermaids. The difference with this one is it is going to be all blue and silver, very monochromatic. I am using the heat and back welding for now, to create the blue hues, and am adding lots of special pieces, hand made jewellery, and full decoration that will go on as the final touches. This is going to have it's own environment and is already amazing, fantastic, and fun to work on. A sneak pic to see as well. Enjoy!
