Owl – reused wood and stone

20160320_140924

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me

This piece is made of pine stump, bark and twig. I’ve used that to make a base. I didn’t polish the surface, because I really like the texture of the wood itself as well as the traces of the saw. Bark removal revealed smooth silky wood side, as the contrast to the rough front and back surface. I’ve applied “foresty” colours (shades of green, brown and yellow) on the front and back.

Than it was time for the owl. I had one stone I picked up in my walk. The moment I saw that stone I knew it was going to be the owl one day. So, I grabbed my acrylics and the owl was born!

Finally, I glued on bark, owl, and twig on my base wood and put on some varnish.

Et vóila!  My recycled wood sculpture is here.
