More importantly I picked up materials for my carved birds. My birds are mounted on found twigs. I’m always searching for unsual and interesting sticks. Along the roadsides of the the Adirondacks and New Hampshire I picked up a nice faggot (How nice to use this word correctly) of mixed silver and white paper birch.
I also gathered a bit of white paper birch bark, a smathering of pine cones, a few wonderful stones and a male eider feather.
Look for these materials in new work.
