I’ve made lots more Fortuny things including these toadstools.
And a couple others:
A gentleman sailor owl braving a perilous sea all alone
A dastardly owl
A rose colored and gold songbird
And a red and blue songbird
(these and others are available at the Fortuny showroom in Manhattan)
absolutely adore the detail on the base of the beak of those songbirds, that raw edge somehow makes it for me. and i think someday i just might have to attempt a copycat mushroom, i have just the velvet for the cap underside… (and i’m a bit batty over fungi in general.)
just realized i still haven’t unwrapped the bird i ordered about four years ago. i’ve been saving it for a birthday, x-mas, rainy day etc… have moved, lived abroad and so on, and now it has been so long it almost feels wrong to open the box!
Your mushrooms are pure magic, Anne. What a good tip about the glass to give them balance. I always enjoy your owls but that dastardly chap is very special.
Everything is fantastic but the toadstools….ooooooooooooo!!!
I would love to stock some of your things in my Homestore – which is opening on the spring. Please let me know how to go about it. PW
The dastardly owl! I think I’m in love.
Ils sont vraiment ces Oiseaux et ces Champignons,l’oiseau chanteur en particulier à ma préférence, est ce que vous les vendez?
bonne et heureuse année 2013. Cdt
