Hummingbird 8 by SeanAvery Hummingbird 8 by SeanAvery
Hummingbird commission.

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!

Amazing work!

I love the idea of using CD shards to make sculpture, the vibrant colors it produces suites the peice well. I wonder how it is you come up with so many CD's to produce your pieces though? Sounds like it could be expensive just to buy blanks. Worth it regardless!
