The Birds are Taking Over

I am working on three things (actually four but I have not shown the fourth in this post) and the birds are definitely taking over. Top owl is a detail of a tile I have been wanting to do, the owl plate went off to New Zealand and I wanted to develop this bird. With this in mind below is a smallish plate with a fantasy bird (you don’t say) based on the owl.

The plot gets oh so much thicker with the 3D versions. This is the first one off the bench. Thrown and altered, a prototype for an idea below and clearly not an owl. The modelled birds (not shown) have eyes like nails (because you know the way those pesky birds look at you, it is just like that) and his legs are screws (at the moment, I may find another way).
