#169 Garden Bird Eggs
A really stunning mixed media piece created from a segment of a type case / wooden printmakers drawer. These 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 exact size of the real eggs and hand painted. I use the little Observer's Book of Bird Eggs for reference.
There are eight eggs in this piece, they are:
Mistle Thrush, Blackbird, House Sparrow, Bullfinch, Goldfinch, Great Tit, Blue Tit, and Wren.
The Mistle Thrush egg, the largest one in this piece measures 30mm whilst the Wren 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 - this can be folded down if not being used.
Dimensions: 8.3cm wide, 20.5cm high, 3cm deep.
