This tall, tall fellow is full of attitude and rustic charm. He's a Spoonbill, and he's proud of his enormous beak and his funny face.
Made of steel fencing wire and dark annealed wire. His bold head is made with the handle of a spray nozzle for a hose. I've wanted to make this sculpture for a long time with this cool old metal handle, and here he is. His body is draped in a heavy, chain necklace with gems in it. His tail and neck wattle are made with rustic jewelry items. And finally, his claws are made with interesting jewelry pieces I had in my stash.
Spoonbill measures 9.75 inches tall by 4.5 inches wide by 6.5 inches long.
