For me its the end of a tiny life and the glimpse of seeing something fragile close up.
These sculptures are made from fabric scraps,plastic,paper, wire,fake flower petals,floral tape and found objects.
They are scuffed and dirty,fragile and quiet.
A reminder of how delicate life is.
Make of them what you will.
This particular bird is based on a dead albino parrot.
He has sugar pink feet and eyes.
Hes mostly made from cotton and his ruffly feathers are made from artificial white flower petals.
He has taken a long time to make from his little white claws down to his little pearly buttons sewn around his neck area.
The fake flower petals that I have used have simulated tiny water droplets on some of them and I have used them for this reason it reminds me of dew.
On the crown of his head is a crest made from curled translucent plastic.
This is the first dead bird memorial I have made of this size.
Perfect for the dark valentine.
Each one stitched tightly capturing a moment or evoking a mood.
Display on a stack of books or behind glass on an empty table or vacant windowsill.
Flaws and odd stitching are celebrated and are to expected.
Designed as a purely decorative object.
He will be sent out recorded so can be tracked and signed for on delivery.
Nothing I make is designed to be given to a child/baby as they are very delicate items which contain wire and beads.
This birds is approx 11.5cm at his widest and roughly 18cm in length.So I would say this is roughly lifesize to a parrot.
Thanks for looking!
