Every spring new mama birds build nests in the nooks and crannies around my house. I am always wowed by these beautifully woven structures. I have amassed a good collection of abandoned nests over the years.
Sometimes I use the nests, or inspiration from the nests, in my own work.
These amazing structures inspire meditations on themes of love, nurture, liberation, loss, and rebirth.
