Oh the wonderful fragrant sage, so plentiful east of the Sierra Nevada where I live. I sculpted the bird of paper mache and paperclay. The beak is a stone found in the mountains near my home. The tail is a lovely scrap of sage wood found while out walking. The sturdy legs are wire I sculpted. The final decorative layer is a lovely ecological plant fiber paper which I printed with my drawings of sage and the botanical name "artemesia tridentata". Glass bead eyes gaze gently. I gave the entire sculpture a protective coating of artist matte varnish. 4.5" tall, 6" long
