Bird Totems

Wow, dust this off.  I just looked up when I started these ceramic birds and it was July 2nd, 2015!  Here were the beginning stages:  https://becreativemary.wordpress.com/2015/07/02/birds-taking-formation/

You see, this is what happens when a month or two pass and you never got around to finishing that thing you were working on.  You walk back into the studio a month later and you look at this strange idea you had and you think to yourself  “What was I thinking?  These bird totems are absolutely ridiculous and non-functional???”  Those were my exact thoughts and so every time I walked past them I’d think “I should really finish these and get them out of here” but in my next breath I’d think “why bother what in the heck am I going to do with 6 strange bird totems???”  Obviously this battle in my head played out for quite some time, since 6 months went by!!!

But alas, I finished them off.

I still have 50 walking sticks I collected off a beach in Block Island and forced my husband to attach to the car and take home with us.  I insisted I would be attaching these birds to them….and it was going to be great….and of course highly functional!!!!

Oh my dear husband :)

This spring I will have to attach the birds to sticks if only so I can slightly wipe the grin off my husbands face for thinking I am a total freak!!!

But let’s face it.  He knows, you know and secretly I know, that either way I will still be a freak that took six months to finish some strange ceramic bird totems!!!
