Swallow in the Clouds Tabletop Sculpture
I am particularly fond of the graceful and garrulous Barn Swallow, having quite a large colony of them living in my own barn each summer. To me, they are the heart of summer, their brief presence here in upstate New York filled with their graceful aeronautics and cheerful chattering. So it's fitting that I chose this image for my second tabletop sculpture.
The Swallow is of copper, hammer-textured and colored with alcohol inks. The clouds are copper and brass, both hammer-textured, oxidized, alcohol-inked and RubNBuffed (phew.) The entire piece has been protected with a light coat of museum-quality Renaissance Wax, but you should expect to see some color change over time and dependent on where you display the piece.
The sculpture is 3"H X 5.5" W X 2.5"D.
This piece can be made-to-order. Please allow two weeks for fabrication and delivery. And also please keep in mind that each piece is handcrafted and much of the color results from heat on copper, so while each piece will be similar, it will also be truly unique.
