African Wenge Spirit Bird with Colorful Opaque Marble; Wingspan 23"
Spirit Birds ~ Elegantly engaging wings of imagination.
· This Wenge Spirit Bird features a beautiful captured marble made by glass artist Phillip Nolley. The Spirit Bird with captured artisan glass marble reminds us of the illimitable and inimitable potential within each of us.
· I carefully sculpt the elegant wings of each Spirit Bird on the lathe at 2500 rpm with hand held cutting tools, exhilarating!
· Then hollow out the center cavity to an absolute perfect depth and diameter to receive the artisan glass marble, and meticulously sand the entire piece to an incredibly smooth surface before capturing the marble with tolerances that allow the marble to rotate and spin.
· Finally I sign each piece and finish with clear organic oil. Dimensions: 23" Wingspan x 7" Depth (front to back) x 2.5" High.
· The Spirit Bird with captured artisan glass marble reminds us of the illimitable and inimitable potential (Spirit) within each of us.
