It has taken many years to decide on the present simple configuration of the 'bird' atop the nest. The brush sparkles when wet, but it could be placed indoors.
Judge's Comments MIFGS 2023
This work, mostly created from “found objects” is terrific. I loved the absurdly small bird aloft the bright blue spikes. A kind of huge man made callistemon. I thought this also reflects our time- contemporary sculptural practices. Especially, the plastic combined with the metal. It was also great to see a bright coloured, bold work amongst the greenery and metals.
