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.
