We have a lot of willy wagtails living in our garden.
I’ve enjoyed sitting him on a imaginary telegraph wire for display. Almost a thing of the past, we’ve forgotten how prolific telegraph lines stretched across Australia. How better to preserve a nostalgic past with one of the many birds that shared a lookout on its wires. Do you remember the hum of the wind in the wires?
Made from stainless steel cutlery, I filled in more of the bird than some of my other pieces and gave him a cheeky side glance. Fun to make and fun to enjoy.
