A Wonder from Down Under


'Dare To Dream'
I became aware of Melanie Allan work in the course of Etsy conversations when she expressed interest in my dragon stamp. I went to her Flickr site and was delighted to find this whimsical piece of polymer clay art. I am curious about the size.

Melanie, how big is this thing?

Hi Joan,
Thanks so much for posting the birds on your blog.
The piece was started off being a sort-of 'arty' necklace but then took on a life of its own (as these things do!
From wing tip to wingtip its 31cm (12 1/4"), from wing tip to perch 25cm (9 3/4").
Although I have made ceramic sculptures in the past, I must say, that this was the first time I had done anything like this in polymer clay, so was abit of a learning curve!!
Thanks again

Melanie
