An american avocet still in the sculpting stage.

Just like her friend the willet her feathers are made from the skirt of a thread bare, swiss dot, edwardian lawn gown. She’s lying on a piece of it here.

  1. This is so amazing the way the fabric actually looks like feathers what an inspiration.

  2. This is really fascinating! Is it sculpture or toy making or someting else?
    I’m teaching art to high school kids this fall and I’d like to show this to them.
