mechanical owl


Hi! Here's my favorite of the new batch, a little 'mechanical' owl. Its round head will swivel and its hollow, so it'll be nice and light. This will be cast in bronze, with gemstone eyes. Yeah, can you tell I grew up in the eighties loving the original 'Clash of the Titans'? Anyway, I've got my fingers crossed that this piece will cast nicely, so we can debut it in Tucson. We've got a week left.......back to work!

Bubo! The most wonderful thing in Clash of the Titans! I've had fantasies of cobbling together a clockwork copy of Bubo the Owl since I was little. I'm in love!

Yes! Frogs! How about turtles?
