Their search ended when they came upon Sasuke, a rare bird from the Orient with a reputation of resolve that was firm....but gentle.
The Velvet Bird is my first fully fabric sculpture. She is built over a wire armature and wears very soft pink velvet as her fine clothing. Real feathers are her tail. Glittered and pearl lace serve as her wings. Glass eyes inset in polymer rims, are beneath a handmade golden crown. Large and small pearls are sewn into her tail dotted with pretty little flowers.
Her poseable toes are gold lacquered wire.
Thank you dear Karin for graciously giving me the happy opportunity to create this sweet companion set. It was thrilling to actually make my first ever velvet bird sculpture...I am so glad you asked!!
