I'm working on some sketches at the moment for Bird sculptures for an exhibition I have been invited to exhibit at The Birds and the Bees at the Craft Centre and Design Gallery, City Art Gallery, The Headrow, Leeds.
I thought if I could, I would include a Bee Eater, and my idea is to carve this in Serpentine or Soapstone. They are such colourful, sleek birds that a stone with a bit of variation and shine would suit the piece well.
A Bee Eater will be quite a challenge to carve, with its thin, streamlined body and very sharp elongated bill. There may have to be a few compromises.
Exhibition Dates: Saturday 24th March - Saturday 30th June
