Description

Black Throated Blue Warbler
2″w x 3 1/2″l x 3 1/2″t
White Pine, Steel, Found Limb and Poplar
Number 76
Signed: GB Davis, Noblesville, March 2010

Label: 50 Little Birds for Blue Stone Folk School, No. 76, GB Davis, Noblesville
$75.00

This bird was carved from a mounted specimen at Cool Creek Nature Center in Westfield, Indiana.

Each of the 50 little birds is designed and carved using traditional hand tools. A specialized finish technique involves up to 20 different steps using traditional methods and materials to achieve a finish that not only looks old, but exhibits complex and subtle colors and textures. A visiting artist once offered that the birds beg to be held in the hand and rubbed.

50 Little Birds is a project begun early in 2009 in order to fund technology and construction costs at Blue Stone Folk School, a traditional arts program in Noblesville, IN. As of November of 2009 over $1500 has been raised for the school. Every dollar of sales of birds numbered 1-50 goes towards the Folk School. 10% of birds numbered over 50 benefit the school.
