Pierced Bird Window

This lit­tle cop­per piece is wait­ing for a home.

It’s about 2.5 inch­es square. The back­ground and fig­ure win­dow are cop­per. The tube riv­ets and spac­ers are brass.

The back­ground pat­tern was print­ed onto the cop­per using a com­mer­cial pat­tern sheet with the rolling mill. The bird fig­ure is a sim­pli­fied out­line tak­en from a Dutch tile that I found in a book.

The pierced piece floats over the back­ground.

I sus­pect that this piece will end up as part of some­thing larg­er. Per­haps a box.

Mean­while it’s liv­ing on the design wall.
