Rare Birds

Lori Jo Acre's avatar Lori Jo Acre

These sculptures are items gleaned from items I pick up while walking on Lake Huron beaches. They are made from rocks and feathers, driftwood, logs and sticks. My intention in using this medium is to draw attention to the beauty of our Great Lakes and the need to protect them. Nature and science are warning us. They are the "canary in the coal mine." Our lakes are precious and rare and deserve the resources necessary to protect them. Each sculpture is a reference to either a song,a phrase or an idiom related to birds. Some sculptures create themselves from one walk. Others are put together from many walks that span several seasons. Each whimsical sculpture represents the diversity of people and the sense of humor needed to get through any transition in life.
