Blackbird

PETRA GIEDE-BARNES

Pallet block and driftwood from the North West coastline of Scotland, flint pebble with hole from Selsey, heather from the Coigach peninsula.

The sculpture was inspired by the shape of the driftwood and by my first bird sculpture Taking Off which I had been very attached to.  The bird was so fragile that it needed suspending on a branch in of heather to let it sing.
