I was inspired yesterday after one of my birds made Etsy's front page to finish a few I had in progress (I have so many things "in progress" that this was quite rewarding!) I don't know why she became a nun- it just happened......
Call me old school- but I liked when nuns wore habits. I don't know why, maybe because they're easier to spot? Must be my parochial school upbringing.
Sister Birdie is made from antique German porcelain bisque doll parts that I wired together. Her bird head is also antique bisque- (part of my secret collection of clay bird heads stashed away in my studio- but that's another post!)
