House Finch

Mixed-Media Wall Sculpture

The warm glow of these frequents to the artists' bird feeder always catch their eye. What a lovely songbird. What a spot of joy.

The bird and branch are made with a thin veneer of polymer in millefiori marquetry is pieced together to form the top surface of this wall sculpture. The entire piece is backed with .25" maple plywood and then has a small wooden collar which houses a very strong rare earth magnet. It mounts to the wall with a coordinating countersunk magnet. The bird and branch sit about 1" off the wall creating a realistic sense of depth. Edges of the branch and bird are painted with acrylic paints.
