Taking Flight is a work of sculpture and assemblage.
Each year, the vultures migrate to our farmstead and stay for the season. I am enthralled by their arrival and anxious to take a head count each spring. I find them a true inspiration for my artwork. This work is all about having birds in general on my mind.
The bust and the birds are sculpted from eathen clay and finished with a hand rub and buff method. The box is wooden with a hinged acrylic cover on the front. Inside are various bird-themed objects that have been handmade.
This is a one-of-a-kind sculpture.
