Bird Sculpture
Wooden blocks, riveted together, are combined to create a form which resembles the profile of a bird in flight. At one end of the base of the sculpture, two steps suggest the head and upper body, at the opposite end, four pieces form the tail. A diagonal form projects from the centre of the base, consisting of eight angled pieces forming a serrated edge, suggest the bird's extended wing
