Baby Penguin
2014
Mixed Media
Width: 25cm Height: 38cm Depth: 17cm

A baby penguin going for a stroll along the beach! Here's his adventure:

CD shards (over 50 CDs used)
Wire mesh frame
Hot glue
Black and chrome paint
2 weeks work time

I use kitchen scissors to cut the shapes I need out of the CDs, then arrange each shard by colour and size. I then hot glue those shards one-by-one to a wire mesh frame to create a natural feather pattern.

Beautiful work. The shape perfectly describes the awkward waddle, especially when viewed from behind.
