The best part of this project is that I brought it home tonight and my family could tell it is supposed to be a goose! Special thanks to Brad Isley for working in the shop with me and helping me on everything I need help with to get my project done on time. Thanks to Peter Freese for tolerating all the time I spend at the shop and supporting my need to make stuff out of junk.
As part of my workshop clean up project I have been working on using up some of the art supplies that have been sitting around the shop for awhile. these little birds are made from shovels, horseshoes , disc brakes and a few other odds and ends. From left to right, Fern, Eve, & Dixie added Frens hair after the photo was taken.
I am super excited to announce that I am curating an art event at the Columbia Winery, The opening Reception is scheduled for January 9th at 4pm-7pm during the Meet the Artist Happy Hour! Mark your calendars now to save the date! The show will run until April 1, 2014 14030 NE 145th St, Woodinville, WA 98072

Before starting my more time consuming projects I like to work on some fun and some what simple projects. Dragon flies, angels and flowers made with cutlery. Birds made out of shovels, horse shoes sickle mover blades and tow balls. Birds are currently available at Experience Tea on Front Street in Issaquah.
I love working in my work shop!
What a wonderful weekend! I had a friend fly up from California to make the road trip to Bonners Ferry to deliver Idaho. Our first stop was to fuel up!
Then we stopped in to pick up some tea.
Coral Was pretty happy to meet the newest Member of her family! She even gave Idaho a welcome kiss!
Well it is August 6th and I am still working on finishing touches! I am getting so close to being done.I am pretty happy with how he is coming alone so I had to give Idaho his first kiss!
In case you missed the back story on Idaho: He is the 2nd wire bird I have made. The first one I donated to an art auction to benefit our local art gallery. I started with a roll of recycled wire that I bought from a friend’s dad for $20.00 I might just have enough to make one more bird!
I am so excited to be getting to close to being finished with Idaho. My plan is to drive him to Idaho on the 15 of of the month! Last night I worked in the shop until 10 PM hoping to finish. But I still have to clean about 40 wires and straighten out his leg as the vice has been a bit hard on him. His feet also need some work.
