An exotic bird of indeterminate gender rests while it tends the nest under a silvery moon and a starry sky. Due to the nippiness of spring weather, the bird is wearing a pink scarf and, rather unexpectedly, a top hat. The night is still and cold; the moon is out and the stars are shining brightly. The bird waits patiently over the nest, protecting its single speckled egg until it's time to hatch.
Sculpted from papier mache, wire, specialist paper, wood and mirror, the theme on top of the box is repeated on the sides and ends. The box is painted inside (a sandy yellow), and stands on legs of painted and whittled vintage pencils. Painted in acrylic and finshd with a matt varnish, the box is 7.5 inches by 5.5 inches, and stands 17.5 inches tall.
This is an art object and a functional box.
My work is made with care, attention to detail and is designed to last.. Everything is designed and made by hand, by me, unless stated otherwise.
I'm happy to ship anywhere in the world but please email me first for an exact quote, thankyou!
