Morning Herald

Sculpture made with recycled wood and glass. Subject matter is the coming of the dawn depicted by an abstract rooster decorated with clear glass balls with mirror coating on portion set into the wood to give the effect of dew drops. Displayed on a granite base.

 

Morning Herald

 

Morning Herald was made with wood salvaged from a cargo ship. The wood was used to pack containers and then discarded after the cargo had been unloaded. I don’t know what kind of wood it is, but it has a nice reddish quality and beautiful grain. I painted the buried portion of the inset glass balls with mirror paint. This gives them a pearl like quality when viewed head on that also shows a reflection.
