Steampunk Crows

Well I cannot believe that we are well into November.  The weather has been so beautiful, unusually warm and sunny most days.  Alas, the rain has started and the leaves, once so beautiful and colourful, are now yellow and blowing off the trees.

Time to get crafting!  I thought I would make a couple more steampunk crows before the end of the year as I have had interest from the Coast Collective gallery (Wale Road, Collwood, BC) and from Two Hoots Gallery (Cobble Hill, Fisher Rd).

I ended up making three crows:

My first crow well, she is a world traveller and I even made her a wee travel journal, full of travel quotes: (This one is at the Coast Collective)

Cloth, polymer clay, found objects

The wee crow on her head is also polymer clay

You can see her metal purse on her crow foot!
The second crow is all about the light, so I named him "Lighten Up": (this crow is at Two Hoots Gallery in Cobble Hill)

He sits atop a light house

His wee companion inside is made all of polymer clay with metallic paint

Finally, to round off the trio, I made the iconic "Time Flies" to symbolize that the year is moving quickly to its end:

Take a look at his forked feet!

Notice this crow is tech savvy with his computer board on his wing

He is ready for flight and a new year!
