This sculpture is created from a very rare carpathian elm burl. I’ve long been fascinated by falcons that nest in the rugged southwest terrain of canyon walls and high cliff ledges. This peregrine aerie is a spartan conglomeration of rock chips and a few feathers nestled around the clutch of eggs. The sculpture speaks to me of the fragility of life and the challenges of the elements.
While the struggle begins with the eggs, it can be won by the falcon, a majestic bird of prey. Juried into the 2004 Birds in Art Exhibit; Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wausau, WI. and the 2008 Flights of Fantasy; The Artistic Bird; Brookgreen Gardens; Murrells Inlet, SC.
