Hi there~ Hope your day is going well! The sun Finally came out today~Hooray!!
I didn't have a chance to do a Mother's Day update in the Gallery...But, a Mother's Day piece has been whirling around in my head for a while, so I decided to take the day to create it...
seize the moment before the idea is gone~Haha!
This is my "Patient Mum"
I began early this morning with an ordinary box. I cut the box apart to create this open birdhouse form. I then collaged a collection of special papers to the entire house. For the roof...very early book covers! I drilled several tiny holes down the peak of the roof on each cover, and then laced the covers together with fine brass wire. This piece also has a rust wire loop for hanging. It sits or hangs.
Of course, Mum needed a perch to watch over her egg. I made a mama blackbird from sparse black kid mohair and gave her wire poseable feet. This way I could curl her claws to her perch.
And her egg is a real hand blown egg...nestled in a nest of sweet annie and drieds.
This piece is a One-of-a-Kind and available for Sale at $119.00
She will be sold first come, first serve~
Many Thanks! and
Have a Wonderful Mother's Day!!
