Small hummingbirds are still surprisingly strong!

They are so intricate and delicate fly with such precision and grace. It was fun to get in there with my pencil grinder and draw in all the little feathers. Designing this bird was certainly a challenge as compound curves are very difficult with stainless. So I had to find a way to create separate pieces that overlapped in a way the felt seamless. Overall I love how this sculpture turned out. I later redesigned this sculpture to be smaller for a client. So I have two sizes available. See below for sizes.

This wall hanging hummingbird sculpture is wall hanging, made entirely of stainless steel, colored using only heat patinas and is completely safe to be kept outdoors!
