When Maurice Clabaugh of Tuscaloosa AL shared this "Duck in the Reeds" wooded bowl sculpture with me, I knew I had to share it here on the blog.
According to the bio on Maurice's website, he "uses wood that has been discarded by others as useless or impossible to turn. His challenge is to take these discarded pieces and reveal their beauty."
To complete the effect of the wood for this bowl carving, Maurice implemented these glass duck eyes on wire pin posts. The combination of natural wood with the realistic bird eyes is transfixing!
I love discovering amazing artists who are creating with such a wide range of materials--and I'm so happy that my glass eye designs get to be a part of projects like this.
