Rook – Transforming Materials
By Paula Briggs
You can hear how the Share-a-Bird project came about here. I've been watching the rooks in the garden for some time, and reading how all Corvus cache (hide) food and treasures, in A Life With Corvus by Esther Wolfson. I also read how a disused rooks nest was dismantled and found to contain a whole plethora of material, including earthworms, lego and fabric.
Added to that are the many stories of rooks bearing gifts to those who feed them (though I'm still waiting!).
It seemed appropriate to make a sculpture of a bird containing a rich mixture of elements and the One Button jewellery boxes from the Transformation Project were perfect.
