The Joy of Imitation

Parrot on a plinth with ceramic figure

24cm x 8cm diameter

Charlestown loved the rainforest, but was an inquisitive bird and often strayed from his nest for entertainment in the suburbs. One morning he found a forlorn street child and took him under his wing. He taught him to squawk authentically and rewarded him with the most exquisite fruits from the canopy branches.

The base of this piece is wooden covered with paper mâché and decoupage, and the parrot is embellished with collected feathers, textiles, jewellery, dried flower components and beads. She has also been dressed with decoupage, paint and silver leaf.

All my pieces are individual and one-off - as I only work with recycled and reclaimed objects I never know what I am going to find. If you are looking for something particular, please ask - and I'll start looking!
