I did some sketching of crested birds and some more thinking about bird legs.
White crested bird.
Her legs are wrapped with floral tape left over from wrapping the stems of the one hundred and forty five origami flowers I made for our wedding. Hurray for floral tape! I have a big roll of it in brown coming in the mail to me so subsequent birds will not have to be all white. I also used copper wire and in a little higher gauge. This wire is more malleable and therefore really easy to work with.
In my mind while I was making this bird I was thinking about Camilla Taylor. Do you think there is a resemblance? I hope she is not offended by this. I do think she’s rather lovely to look at. If you like white birds, see these beautiful birds by Sandra Monat and Tamar Mogendorff and Lauri Faggioni. Good stuff.
