#171 Garden Bird Eggs
A lovely little mixed media piece created from a segment of a type case / wooden printmakers tray. These pieces came about through my fascination with the birds that visit our garden.
I have made the eggs from clay and set them in resin in the printers tray. Each egg is carefully measured to the size of the real eggs and hand painted. I use the little Observer's Book of Bird Eggs for reference.
There are six eggs in this piece, they are:
Starling, Blackbird, House Sparrow, Robin, Bullfinch, and Coal Tit.
The starling egg, the largest one in this piece measures 30mm whilst the coal tit egg is the smallest at just 15mm high.
This piece is signed on the back. It can be free standing or hung on the wall with the triangular brass fittings and wire.
Dimensions: 20cm wide, 6.2cm high, 3cm deep.
