Hummingbird 9 by SeanAvery Hummingbird 9 by SeanAvery
Hummingbird commission — one of the last sculptures I'll be doing for a little while!

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!

Serious skills !! I love your choice of materials as well, both for the creativity and sustainability factor ... reminds me of Sayaka Ganz work.
