Pink Hummingbird

Pink Hummingbird by WireArtInk
Pink Hummingbird, a photo by WireArtInk on Flickr.

The humming bird is an original art piece hand sculpted by me. The humming bird measures 1.5x1.5 (LxWxH). It has a powder pink body with a copper beak and a iridescent eyes. It is attached to a nylon string and suspends in the air.Construction of the humming bird is pink and copper wire that is coated with a protective clear sealant. Glass beads are used for the eyes. The structure is solid enough to with stand many falls. It will bend when direct pressure is put on it but will easily go back into place without breaking.

About Me

My photo
Antonia Hansen has been making both fine art and crafts all her life. She grew up in a blue collar family that loved to craft. She came from a long line of crocheters dating back to her Great Grandmother. She was exposed to fine art by her Dad's mom on the other side of the family. As a result she walks the fine line between art and craft. Antonia has a Bachelors degree in Music and BA in Art from San Francisco State University. She has worked in several mediums which include: graphite, ink, water color, acrylic paint, oil paint, charcoal, dry pastels, ceramics, paper-mache, jewelry design, knitting, and crocheting. She began working with wire six years ago. While doodling a lot during meetings at work a co-worker suggested that the drawings really lent themselves to wire. That little comment was just the thing to set fire to an idea and push the wire work into motion.
