The Tweet Mistresses, my new sculptures, these two went to the lovely lady that commissioned me to do them because of her love of the Hermit Thrush’s song. They are a series of seven. One other has been delivered to Handworks Gallery. I will be casting four more that will be ready for the summer season.

The little one lay in my lap, just like this, whilst I worked on her when waiting for an appointment for my dog.

A technician came to the car, “We Are ready for Matey to…”, the tech’s eyes widened, “Oh dear, can I help your bird?”

I looked down at the bird in my lap, “ Oh,no!” With a chuckle I said, “It’s wax, I’m finishing details on it before bringing it to the foundry.”

I relayed the story to the person who commissioned me, she said, “That’s so funny!! A compliment to our thrush – I think….😀”
