Conception of a Bird

This is my first Driftwood sculpture. I called it "Conception of a Bird". It represents a frozen beginning stage of the forming of an image or idea of a bird in the human mind.

Title: Conception of a Bird.
Wood: Unknown Driftwood. Possibly some kind of root.
Base: Peruvian Black Walnut. Turned.
Finish: Natural Danish Oil & Beeswax.
Time from start to finish: About 15 hours in the span of several weeks.

Thanks for the link. It is more than I expected. It moves, I am truly impressed.

This one is really cool, although I still like my incense burner that I use everyday :)

I found your blog while searching for driftwood polishing info. Your new bird piece is beautiful. I plan to contact my local group here on the Eastside soon, and thank you for the info.
