This is perhaps the finest example of my intricate detail work yet. This proud little sonsgster is busy belting a song from the protection of the high grass. It is made of tupelo and painted with oils. It is life-sized. It is in a private collection.

Spizella passerina

Jim crafted the strand of field grass upon which this colorful chipping sparrow delicately perches out of brass. The sparrow itself is carved from tupelo wood.

This carving was awarded 3rd Place at Concours Quebecois d’Sculpture Oiseaux in 2003. It is in a private collection.
