The last few weeks have been spent working on a few larger pieces. After I saw the Chicken Weathervane on eBay, which was beyond my reach, I decided to create pieces that were ‘statement” pieces. Here is one of six. This one is 32″ tall and the bird is 22″ end to end. The ball is about 5″ in diameter. The bird was carved by Sam McKamie—I added wood sculpt to the wings and carved a little more. Sam is the basic carver. I tweaked it a little. The stand is an antique Industrial mold.
