Owl is not as it seems

Owl Is Not As It Seems

A sculpture in Stoneware visually investigating a message I received from a Little Owl in when I was out for a walk.
She spotted me long before I spotted her, camouflaged against the dry stone wall. Maybe it was her staring at me that made me see her – you know that feeling you get when you’re being watched. I stood with her for a good 20 minutes. I placed my hands on the wall and closed my eyes to connect with her.

She said, “Listen.” All is not as it looks. Though my eyes are large my hearing is my power. The power to listen.”

Thank you, dear owl.

I sketched a few ideas and nothing seemed to fit until one evening I was inspired to create this piece.

I love how she shows her owl form from every angle.
