There’s a lot of birdwatching to do from my studio, so when I was asked to make something at short notice for an exhibition with the theme ‘Animals’, the subject was quickly found.
I wanted to create clouds and islands full of birds, and for that reason chose to make them in series using molds.
The birds are cast in four different models and finished by hand. The cast seams are left unfinished to emphasize that they are made by hand in a limited edition. The porcelain rocks are filled with birdcage sand and form a stable base.
The birds can be placed at different heights on the perspex rod (you can break it at the height you desire) and they can also rest on their rock without the perspex rod.
