"Blue Heron"  installation piece. Made this one in 2010 Standing almost three feet tall. This nature scene consists of an array of functional pieces.  First, there are 9 functioning Sherlock flowers made by the artist GingerELA that can be picked and flipped over to expose a Sherlock.  All of the eggs and rocks below the bird are also functional.  As for the Heron itself, air travels in the center of its shoulders, down its spine, and under its belly, where it percolates in the chest cavity.  Then it travels up the neck, to the head which removes to expose the mouth piece. The green palms in the background are the result of my first experimentation with soft glass! Check it out in person at @mellowmood in Portland OR.  Or on my website  www.BuckGlass.com  Photography by the talented @jlzill
