Next Group of Birdies

Hi Everyone, I hope your week is going well. I've had a couple of really good days back in the studio this week, where I actually had a nice window of time to work, instead of grabbing an hour here or there. I took this photo for a possible client the other day, and there are some new birdies pictured in here. I am having fun doing the bases in different colors, and that also suits my ADHD too. :) I get tired of doing things all the same color all of the time.

In other news, I spoke to a fellow sculptor the other night at my art guild meeting, and he told me of a foundry that's closer to home! I loved the guys in Florida that I used, but if I can use a good foundry closer to home... Well, that would be just awesome. So I'm going to set up a meeting with these guys and see what we can do for each other. Maybe I'll get to have some new bronzes in the near future! I'd love to have some smaller sculptures cast in bronze... Hope your week finishes up on a happy note! I think I'm going to head to the gym this morning and try to keep this body healthy.. ~Kelly


  1. so, are the birdies for sale ... I would love to maybe buy a red lift bird for my BD in FEB

  2. OMG, you drive all the way down to FL for your bronze? i'm glad you found something closer to home :) am curious to see how that develops. keep us posted :) - M.

  3. LOVE this new batch of birdies!! So pretty, as always.

  4. I'm loving all the colors Kelly!
    Ah, foundries. I love those places. I'm sketching out ideas for new sculptures too. Thanks for the motivation girl! I needed that. =)

  5. I love your flock of birdies! & the colors. It would be awesome to see them in bronze. Happy, creative week!

  6. I love these birdies with colours a lot!

  7. HI everyone! So glad you all like the birdies. I do too and I enjoy making them! Yes, Sonya, they are for sale (of course!), but I need to give first dibs to my other customer. I'll give her a couple more days to decide which one she wants. Then they are up for grabs!

    Thanks Theresa, I'd like to see them in bronze too, but I'd have to figure out the patina , because I sure do like all the colors...

    And yes, Mel, I DO drive all the way to Florida, but I do it because I know those guys are GOOD. I hope this other foundry can help me out, even though they don't specialize in bronze. It sure would be nice to not have to drive 7 hours :)

    Thanks for the kind words!

  8. I love your birds, Kelly. My first thought was "are they for sale?" Let us know if they are!!

  9. So, Kelly, you do this beautiful, incredible art, have an awesome blog and everything else in your woman life
    AND get yourself to the gym!?!
    I am so inpressed and inspired!
    and I love these little birds, too.
    Keep up all the great work.

  10. The birds are lovely! Glad you had a good week :-)
