the first bird

After a small reality check it's clear that there's no way I can get the Rimbaud textile book completed in time for the exhibition in September, so I will save that project for a later date after the thesis is done and dusted.
What I can manage though is a flock of birds, and this is my first one. I'll be making branches for them to stand on and backdrops using my stash of upholstery fabric remnants. By creating an environment for each bird I hope to signal that unlike my cats and elephants, I don't really consider these ones toys, but think of them more as decorative objects for the home.

I know some people prefer to call them soft sculpture. something about the label 'toys' doesn't do it justice.
