Bronze bird

I spent a little time last week working with bronze and copper clays together. It wasn't really very successful but I did get one little bird out of it so thought I'd show him to you.


This is one my standard birds in bronze and then I inlaid copper for the wings and eyes.



I like the contrast between the two metals and for something like this - it adds a nice definition to the bird. What do you think?

I love it!!! I always prefer gold, copper and bronze color for my jewelry. Like a lot!!!

Cute! I've pretty much given up on bronze, since I don't like working with it once it's fired, but I have some copper clay I hope to try soon. You got such a nice finish on the bronze!

It is very nice! I like the contrast of the rough wing and the smooth bird body. Lovely!
