#173 Garden Bird Eggs
A really stunning mixed media piece created from a segment of a type case / wooden printmakers drawer. These pieces came about through my fascination with the birds that visit our garden. This is the largest size bird egg piece I make.
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 used the little Observer's Book of Bird Eggs for reference.
The eggs in this piece are:
Mistle Thrush, Starling, Blackbird, House Sparrow, Dunock, Nuthatch, Goldfinch, Bullfinch, Chaffinch, Robin, Great Tit, Coal Tit, Blue Tit and Wren.
The starling egg, the largest one in this piece measures 30mm whilst the wren egg is the smallest at just 16mm high.
This piece is signed on the back. It can be free standing or hung on the wall with the triangular brass fitting - this can be folded down if not being used.
Dimensions: 27.5cm wide, 11cm high, 4.5cm deep.
