Description

This is 'Blackbird Pie', a fun and macabre taxidermy piece. Originally I had planned to use him for a traditional mount, but various disasters occurred during preparation, resulting in very scruffy bird with a number of bare patches and no legs - so, or course, the obvious solution was to make him a pie to bathe in! The bowl is ceramic whilst the pastry is made from card and painted wood filler. Some of his feathers are a little brown (the result of direct sunlight) but this works with the overall feel of the piece.

He is uncased, but fairly easy to clean (a dry paintbrush works well as a duster).
Measures approx. 10" x 7" x 7"

NB. keep out of direct sunlight, and do not keep on or near the floor (silverfish like nothing better than to munch on fur and feathers).

Additional policies

Care and maintenance:

Bear in mind that fur and feathers will fade in the sun and glue gun glue can partially melt in direct sunlight on a hot day, so artworks should not be kept in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time, especially during summer.

Taxidermy is a favourite snack for clothes moths and silverfish - I've only had problems when I've stored works on or near the floor, so keep it on a shelf, table or cabinet and you shouldn't have a problem! Regular dusting can also help - a clean, dry paintbrush works very well.
