Tufted Titmouse

Mixed-Media Wall Sculpture

Perky and watchful, this sweet titmouse will be a plucky little friend for your wall. Perched on a lichen decorated branch, the wee bird waits and watches and calls us to look out the window, take a walk and be outside in the world.

The bird and branch are made with a thin veneer of polymer in millefiori marquetry is pieced together to form the top surface of this wall sculpture. The entire piece is backed with .25" maple plywood and then has a small wooden collar which houses a very strong rare earth magnet. It mounts to the wall with a coordinating countersunk magnet. The bird and branch sit about 1" off the wall creating a realistic sense of depth. Edges of the branch and bird are painted with acrylic paints.
