Fledgling

Baby bird sculpture. In the 1980's, I focused largely on sculpting animals. One day, while working on a sculpture of three deer, I felt inspired to quickly sketch in the body of this baby bird. I stuck two nails into the clay to serve as legs, set it into a lump of clay, and put it on a shelf. A year later, I took it down to finalize it. For me, the original spontaneity has remained in this piece. 6" high. Urethane Resin.
