Bird – reinventing ancestral techniques

The second attempt to make pieces rarely made in the technique obra plana, the creation of a piece of art from a metal sheet using only hammer and anvil, resulted in this bird and my teacher shaking his head saying something like “I don’t know what to think of you, I’m half satisfied and half… just stupefied”. I’m still not sure if he meant it as a good thing. Anyways, it was possible to make a bird, and I hope that you like it.
