Meet Fyren Stonegate. He is a Short Eared owl and he was made by the lovely Clare Scott. Now, not only does Clare make wonderful beads but she is a very talented wildlife photographer too so when it comes to owls, she knows her Short Eared from her Snowy's!
To make sure he has somewhere to sit and pontificate (that's how they get to be wise) I've made him a little branch to sit on moulded in bronze clay from a cast of a real twig. I think he looks quite at home - don't you?
He's a beautiful little fellow and his plumage is just as lovely on his back feathers.
Fyren has some cousins dotted about and you can see the family album on Flickr and it's well worth it as Clare's pictures are so much better than mine!
