Wren – Pressed Fern

There isn’t often a story that spawns my work, but this piece has a short one to tell.

Not as much a ‘beginning, middle, end’ type of story, more of a moment. I was wondering what to make next and staring out my window as I often do, when the roundest of chubby wrens came to sit on my window ledge. That made my mind up and as you can see from the time lapse movie below, a (fair) few hours later the little chap had been given the fern treatment.
