Bird Something

Made by Rex Winn

This (I could use help with what it is!) is one of my top three favorites. I made it years ago when I first found Jonni’s site. I had been making paper mache strip piggy banks, and the clay and learning about patterns changed everything. I saw creatures on the blog that I loved but hadn’t lost the balloon base. The neck was a paper towel tube. I felt totally free to do what I wanted. She sits in the bathroom and gets attention every day. (Jonni has told me not to put paper mache or watercolors in the bathroom because of the humidity, but I can’t resist. Four watercolors in there!)

While I think about it, anybody got a suggestion for her name? You artists have been a huge inspiration and teacher.

  1. So you do allow yourself sometimes to keep the sculptures you’ve created:-).
    I like the colors and pose, I completely understand why you decided to keep this one.
    Why not name her
    Winnie the B(ird)-Rex

  2. Rex, she looks more like a pterodactyl than any bird currently on earth. Or maybe a cross between a toucan, goose and emu?
    My name vote is Winnie….sort of a play on her creator’s last name??? It was the first thing that came to me, sorry!
