I made this for greybird in the recent curiosity cabinet swap. The bird is modeled after a marsh wren. I sculpted it in Super Sculpey Firm. It was baked with nails in place so I was able to pull them out a little to attach the chain once it was cured.

Just lovely! it looks somewhat like a marry-go-round animal with the chains by it's mouth and the pole it's on. It's simply beautiful and makes me kind of want to do something merry-go-round-ish

Fantastic design work - I love how all the individual elements just seem to be connected to each other. Very interesting to see the in progress pictures, too -- seeing it all come together is brilliant.
