The Chicken with No Name

mosaic with mixed media
42cm x 42cm

Made for the Perthshire Open Studios Taster exhibition at the Bield, near Perth.

The chicken / cockerel is one from the Bield's steading, and is quite a flamboyant one! The Bield operates as a charity, and offers placements for young adults who need to learn skills, including communication, work ethos etc.

I have reproduced him with a variety of broken crockery, including a mug which had chickens on it, and a few mugs which had my father's church on (Eccleshall, in Staffordshire).

The background is made of vintage dishes, where I have cut all the circles out. And the flowers are mostly stoneware.
