Yesterday was spent making some special one off commission pieces....An African Grey Parrot & some Terracotta Warriors! I had done the sketches while I was doing my day at The Court Barn Museum earlier this month.
The parrots are made in seven sections from silver which I've then oxidised. The red tail has been done in copper. I've then scratched through the surface on the silver to give the impression of feathers.
We were lucky enough to visit China in 2001 & went to see the incredible Terracotta Warrior figures. I had a guide book so these images were based on the of the statues. Again made in oxidised silver with punched & stamped decoration.
