She is absolutely one of a kind sculpture / little person /little thinker.
Quiet but strong personality. If/when she goes to a new home, she will be very much missed.

I have hand formed her hollow head with Southern Ice porcelain. Engraved, hand drawn, hand painted with lots of love and care. This particular one has been glazed partly (see her teary eye in 4th image) and then fired to 1280c in a kiln.

Her fibre body is made of Australian merino wool. I wet-felted and sculpted with hands this seamless body shape. One of her wings opens up. Filled firmly with polyester stiffing.

The head is securely but loosely attached to the body with linen threads to one point, so that the head can move, rotates to look aside or sink in the body etc. to show rich facial expressions. (see 5th image)

PLEASE NOTE : She is not a free-standing piece. She needs to lean on something or needs a small support around the base. (an old bird nest would be wonderful!) I sold one with a base earlier but I think I prefer to leave her and her beautiful bird-shaped outline this way.

28cm (L) x 14cm (H) x 8cm (W)

Thank you for looking!
