Birdie’s cage can either remain free standing or be hung from the hoop at the top… the cage is approx. 38 cm / 15 inches tall.  Birdie can come out of the cage if you wish to free her! as she is only tied to her swing…

253She is made from clay over a wire frame, as is the bird in her hand. Her cage and swing are made from wire, beads and ribbon.  Her outfit is handsewn with handsewn beadwork and her feathery tail is made from fabric and beads. She is a one of a kind art doll and is not made for children due to small parts and wire!

Poor little Birdie, so forlorn, she forever gazes upwards longing to grow wings and fly…

busy working on two new sculptural pieces….

001I have been busy working away on two new pieces…a Frida Kahlo and the ticket collector…still lots to do, but here is how they are going…

…he still needs lots of work…

006

…his face is ready to paint and he is waiting patiently for me to make his hat and goggles!

011

His legs are ready for painting…but i am busy making his boots as I write this… his ticket machine is finished! It whirs andclicks in a lovely clockwork manner when the handle is pushed up and down…

009

…which spins the tickets inside…

008

and when the button is pushed, the red stop sign moves in and reveals a green go sign.

004

His gloved hands ….

He keeps urging me to hurry and finish as he has work to do, tickets to check, flying between the floating buses in the world he belongs..I’m doing my best! Check back soon to see how it is going!
