Description

Years ago I completed these owls from a picture, I don't remember if I knew it was an Audubon print or not. To my pleasant surprise, just in January of this year- 2015 I discovered it is the cover of The Art of Audubon, The Complete Birds and Mammals. I walked in the Audubon Center in West Alton, Missouri and there it was. Wow. Well-- in my case of making these and other birds, I am now selling them in the Audubon Center. Way cool!

These double owls are made of sterling silver and oxidized or darkened to help the details stand out. They are detailed on both sides as you can see from the pictures, I love doing it on both sides.
I first made these out of wax, cut them out, filed, engraved and generally nursed them along until I was satisfied. Then using the ancient technique of lost wax casting, I cast them, then made a mold of them. Then the process sort of starts over, I inject wax into the mold, take the wax out and cast it. It is a drawn out process to be able to offer this fine piece to you. The piece is 3/4 by 1 3/8 inch or 18 or 35mm.
Thank you for taking a look.
