fired ceramic tile with glass mosaic edge detail
This piece, “BirdWatcher” was inspired by the artist Parmigianino, and Italian artist and his work entitled “Madonna with the Long Neck” from the era of 1535-40. I love his figures for the unnaturally long necks he gave them.
This long neck lady gazes out of the frame from a field with a sky full of migrating birds. I decided to ‘decorate’ and at the same time add 'closure' to the lower edge of this piece with a lovely pale colored glass motif.
