Artist's description:

After the introduction of cranes to Somerset I was inspired to make some. These were some small scale models based on origami paper cranes after making a life size crane. The most difficult aspect of making these cranes was bending the wire mesh to the same pattern as the origami paper cranes. Hence they are not perfect and an origami master would probably turn in his grave! But I like the way they turned out and the imperfection of their shape just adds to their charm!
This one is made using my own gilded metal leaf glass and gold mirror glass. In some places the red oxide paint I used on the back of the metal leaf shows through the thin leaf giving it a beautiful distressed effect. The size is 26cm from head to tail, height 13cm and wingspan 30cm .

Materials used:

wire mesh, glass fibre mesh, cement mixtures, hand gilded metal leaf glass, mirror glass, millefiori tiles
