60 Days of Crows/Birds?

For anyone who has ever read my blog, you know i have a fascination for birds and crows in particular.  Kimberly Baxter Packwood just suggested a 60-dat crow/bird challenge. Not sure I can do 60 days. We shall see. Here is my latest bird sculpture fresh out of the kiln! I love the texture created by the grog in the clay. It also reflects my interest lately of cracks and altars. Guess I was combining all my interests in one. Of course, this was suppose to be an assignment about crisp, straight edges. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow and know that your teacher just has to understand. Now to figure out something to put into the altar part. Any suggestions? Anyone up to a 60-day bird/crow challenge?


  1. Your work continues to grow in intrigue and interest. On this one, that crack just seems to need something shiny, glittery, regardless of what ends up on the other side. Keep up the good work!

    1. Kathy, Interesting that you should mention shiny, glittery. Originally I was going to fill the crack with colored clay like I did with another crow sculpture of mine. I just didn't get to it. I will take your comment under consideration and see what I can do. Hugs.

    2. love the crack! And I like crows also,, on the bucket list to do something with crows... They fly over our property all the time and talk.

    3. Vivian, Thanks! Make sure you share your crow work with me! Hugs.


Love comments! Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me.
