Hummingbird 10 by SeanAvery
Hummingbird 10

Making hummingbirds!

Width: 35cm
Height: 25 cm
Depth: 10 cm

CD shards (over 40 CDs used)
Wire mesh frame
Hot glue
Gold paint
1 week work time

I use kitchen scissors to cut the shapes I need out of the CDs, then arrange each shard by colour and size. I then hot glue those shards one-by-one to a wire mesh frame to create a natural feather pattern. They usually take a week to make, maybe longer depending on how motivated I am to get them done!



Because I love what I do
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
My name is Sean E Avery and I'm an artist. I build sculptures, I'm a writer-illustrator of children's picture books and I'm a graphic designer. It's awesome.

My sculptures are all constructed with recycled materials — old CDs, computer hard drives etc, so I classify my work as "sustainable art". They're a lot of fun to make, but they take an extremely long time to finish, so I don't do a lot of them.

My first book, All Monkeys Love Bananas…, was released in March, 2012. You can read it here if you'd like: SEANEAVERY.COM/section/272000_…

Check out my stuff, drop me a line if you have any questions!

All the best,

Current Residence: Perth
