The little bird.
Sculpted from life, this work was one of two which played with the idea of a young woman with a little bird, suitable for display in the garden.
I love sculpting in clay for bronze casting, and it it one of my regrets that I do not pursue this art form more resolutely. For somebody who loves the tactile and sensual aspects of nature as much as I do, clay, as also wax, is the most magnificent medium.
