Bird of Wood Art
Not one single project is undertaken without some degree of effort, in fact many often take considerable time, to research and work a design I am willing or capable to execute. Lots of drawings are needed to visualize postures and see potential problems before hand.
Some commisioned work does require specific procedures to fit a particular necessity of the client, the carrier pigeons for example. Others require structural features to cope with size and weight challenges, like with the full size Eagles.
Wood grain direction always determines many aspects of how a bird will stand since I seldom make them from more than one piece of wood or from extremely light woods such as Tupelo or Bass (Balsa), which I strongly dislike.
Not a seller's cell present in by body, I often end up keeping my work, unless it is commisioned by a client I fully trust to keep a commitment or if the nature of the work requested presents a challenge I am unwilling to pass. Sometimes, I like to give them as gifts to deserving friends who appreciate bird related artwork, since sharing them with those who really appeciate the work involved is where the pleasure of it resides.
The link above provides another window into my world and activities. I would like to encourage anyone who would like to exchange ideas, get info or touch bases, to do so (excluded are those seeking to sell me something or those offering to give me unclaimed Nigerian fortunes).
