Copper Bird Feet

Felt Artist Eve Marshall sent me several bespoke copper components commissions in January this year including one for bird feet for use with her cute little felted birds. 

I am sharing pictures of the Wire Bird Feet I made for some of her whacky bird sculptures. They turned out pretty cool don't you think?

And these are some of the amazing Felt Bird Sculptures Eve made. These birds were exhibited recently at Stamford Arts Centre. Eve & I accept bespoke orders for bird sculptures with quirky copper feet. Do get in touch if you would like one!
