BACK TO SCULPTURE

HERE ARE TWO VARIATIONS OF MY BIRD FAMILY SCULPTURES; ONE RUST PROOED WITH A ZINC TREATMENT THAT I ACID ETCED AND BURNISHED AND SET UPON A PALE PINK POST, AND ONE DELIBERATELY LEFT TO RUST AND SET UPON A WHITE POST.

FORGED FROM VARYING SIZES OF FLAT BAR STEEL THESE STYLIZED BIRD FAMILIES WERE PARTLY INSPIRED BY GIACOMETTI'S ELONGATED BRONZE SCULPTURES. THE HEAD POSITIONS WERE ARRANGED SO THAT EACH BIRD SHIFTS IN DOMINANCE AS THE VIEWER WALKS AROUND THEM. THE RUSTED VERSION WAS A PRIVATE COMMISSION.
