Many of the architectural details at the Sheep’s Run showhouse depict birds, so of course I have to honor that. The birds on the grill work shown below are typical of these formal early twentieth century details. They have been restored for the showhouse–some are black wrought iron and some have been re-gilded.
I wanted a bird. So I turned to Steven Snyder, a stone sculptor from Bucks County whose work I have used and recommended to clients before. Steven very graciously offered to lend one of his sculptures. Although he creates many other things, I love Steven’s birds. Shown below, the middle bird still in the studio, worked in terms of height and color, so it will be the new focal point.
