Raggiana Birds of Paradise

About this project

This piece is the beginning of a much larger body of works inspired by Birds of Paradise. Since being young I have been fascinated by these majestic birds and I had to over come many obstacles to create this piece . I collaborated with PNG Tours which run bird watching tours in Papua New Guinea so I could get accurate information on what trees the birds feed and display in. The piece is a combination of throwing, carving, slips, sgraffito, and I have tried to really capture their display dance.
