This full sized songbird is carved from tupelo wood. It’s a beautiful looking bird but is no friend of the wine makers.
The branch, vine and grape cluster were carved separately from one piece of basswood and it is attached to a mahogany base. I wanted to show the thief in action!
The piece was carved using a Foredom power carver for the roughing phase and a micromotor was used for the texturing. Feathers were burned with a Colwood burning tool and finished with many washes of acrylic paints.
