Sculptor, Eric Jacobson, and I will be selling painted metal birds at the NY Creates crafts fair this Saturday, December 6th. The “bird collection” is our first collaboration.
We worked together on shape ideas and settled on 3 variations. Next Eric cut and manipulated aluminum into the “folded” birds, then sanded and primed them. I painted each bird with different patterns using a pallette of primary colors + a bright green. Each bird is unique. Eric finished the birds with varnish, cut tiny holes in the balancing points, and inserted copper wire for hanging the critters.
Eric will also be selling and taking orders for hand made steel pot racks.
The craft fair will be held at the Brooklyn Historical Society, 128 Pierrepont Street @ Clinton Street. (See the link below- they used our sample in the press release.) Please note: The fair is Saturday AND Sunday, but we will only be there on Saturday.
