These are one of a kind sculptures so no two pieces are ever exact. Please allow for variances that are inherent in an original work of art.
Nestmaker #1 will be made from the model of the photographed piece, which was a component of my bigger sculpture, “Willow Flycatchers”, presented at the Rhythm and Flow Exhibit at NWCC-Senatobia.
In this piece, the Willow Flycatcher is attached to the nest and baby with a cold connection.
The only documented nesting of the Willow Flycatcher in Mississippi occurs at Coldwater River National Wildlife Refuge, where these birds choose to visit during their pre and post-breeding migratory season.
I sculpt each piece from copper and old silver plate spoons bought locally.
