Winter Mittens

Size H: 6″  W: 12″  D: 9  Edition Size: 19

I grew up in northern Illinois back when that area still received a lot of snow and cold in the winter months.  My sister and I spent a lot of time outdoors, sledding and ice-skating and building snow forts and snowmen.  Lost mittens were a regular occurrence.  We also always enjoyed plentiful birds around, particularly Juncos, Chickadees, Blue jays, and Cardinals. I loved them all, but Juncos always meant winter to me… and they still do.  Very fond memories of those days inspired this little sculpture of a pair of lost winter mittens frozen in the snow, still holding a handful of seeds intended for the birds.  This little Junco has happened upon this unexpected buffet.
