I finshed my shore birds and an owl over the weekend for Tinlark to take to The Portland Art Fair. There’s more info on Tinlark’s new Blog.
The owl is inspired by beautiful boro textiles and the little indigo cotton prints are really old but were perfectly preserved in the intricate foundation of an otherwise ruined silk victorian bodice.
These are absolutely amazing.
Beautiful birds – and an owl too.
I love the personality in the Willet’s face
Ann Wood, I love these birds you are making. Those lacey feathers are so achingly lovely.
Oh, how I wish I could get to Portland at all, and even better, early enough to bring your willet home with me…
These are just far too lovely. The willet is my favourite.
I really love the owl, I’d never heard of boro before.
I enjoy your birds so much – they’re very special
Really amazing (as always!)
Fantastic birds! Just out of curiosity will you ever include action scenes such as feeding on a worm or a bug? You have definately mastered your craft and I am intrigued on how you would handle such an addition. But if theres no interest I’ll understand, and still be a fan. 🙂
I think I’m in love with the Willet, he/she is absolutely beautiful.
wow… simply wow!!!!!!
Your work is amazing… these are not “craft” but fine art sculpture! I love them!!!
I gotta hand it to you ann – you really nailed this one. raaaaarh!
Oh. Wow. That willet looks almost real! Stunning.
I hope one flies to my house?
Love them all, but the owl is especially perfect!
