"Birdpril 1 (Treasure Bird)"

“Birdpril I (Treasure Bird)”
5”H x 7”W yr.: 2017
reverse glass collage
Treasure Bird is the first reverse glass bird image I’ve made. It didn’t remain with me long, as it was sold quickly. It has a main title of Birdpril I to help me keep track of other similar works, but I call it Treasure Bird because of a bit of word collage under the beak reading ‘most treasured. I used collage images of woven basket to make its’ chest. Its singing is expressed by collaged musical notes.
