The Owl came second, after “Winged Cat I”… though perhaps I should have done it first; it would almost certainly have been easier! Still, this piece went more smoothly because I had already survived the first one, and knew how to avoid some difficulties. I’m very happy with the glowing eyes! 🙂
This was my first major experiment in the medium of papercrete sculpture. It was difficult, and stressful– a real learning experience! Ultimately, though, I am happy with it. 🙂 Thanks to Ursula K. Le Guin for her delightfully inspired concept of “catwings”, and S.D. Schindler for his illustrations– the world is a better place because of them.
