Horned Owl

This past summer my wife and I freed a horned owl tangled in a soccer net. The experience was a rush to be so close to such an elusive creature. We were able to look it directly in it's large, intense eyes. This corrugated sculpture is based on that amazing bird. I used Super Sculpty to create the eyes then sealed them with clear nail polish to give them the shiny-wet appearance.

This owl is so impressive. Isn't it interesting how our life experiences come into our work, in the most delightful way?
