Blue Owl Brooch

Artist Statement: An original wearable art piece by us.

This brooch is constructed out of cherry wood, hand sawn, carved, and assembled to create an stylized three dimensional interpretation of the bird. Then we prime it with gesso, and sand it smooth.

Three coats of acrylic garantee a solid background color where we hand draw with black indian ink the filigree design. Some extra details are added with brush, and at the end we seal the whole piece with a glossy varnish.

Signed in the back.

Measures: 2.75" wing span, 2" height, 1/3" width
