The bird light is slowly taking form. Yesterday I spent a bit of time with power tools and scrap pieces of lumber. The case is now 8″x 8″x 5.5″. It might become a bit narrower since there is a split that formed on one of the sides. I’ll need to do a bit more tweaking to give more reveal for the paper by using an angle cut or something similar. We shall see. By the end of today it should be pinned, clamped and glued together. Hopefully a bit of sanding to follow.
Which paper is the best choice for light diffusion? After auditioning several types, mulberry was the winner. I’m still figuring out what color the front bird should be.
This piece will be heading to the 8″x 8″ show in Brownsville at the end of January.
