This piece was a commission for a friend who wanted a cross. I made several drawings and let my friend guide the direction of the piece. The bird is representative of so many things, spirit, freedom, lightness. It was a delight to carve and i think the lines express that.

This piece was carved from wax by me and cast using the lost wax casting method by my husband, Greg. The bead is made of pure bronze, a lovely metal with a buttery warm finish. Like all metal (besides gold) bronze changes colors, from deep browns to various patinas of blue and green verdigris (which you sometimes see on old statues) . Color change depends on many factors- if it sits soaking in water, the minerals will slowly alter the color, as will heat or acids. To keep the finish on this piece the same, lightly polish with wax, or spray it with varnish. I don't mind the color shifts, I just polish it again with a cloth and admire its new, shiny patina.

This piece measures 17mm wide by 22mm high. Thanks for stopping by!
