“Conceived as a child’s toys these small sculptures are made of found objects, from the beach at Apollo Bay Victoria”.

This project stayed dormant for a long time but it has re-surfaced again.
I went for a walk on a beach last week (March 2008) and found that the pieces of driftwood washed ashore were all looking like pieces to a puzzle which wanted to come together.
The result was about 20 birds made in one evenings work. It took a little longer to string them up in my studio and take photos on a text background.
The text is made up of names of extinct bird species.
