Handcut silhouette of a barn swallow in the reeds.
This is a 3 layer piece, the background piece is reeds swaying in the winds, handcut from a single sheet of archival paper.
The middle layer is a robins egg blue sheet of translucent paper (which changes slightly with lighting), this gives a slightly shadowy effect and brings such gorgeous light and color when window or wall hung.
The star of the show is the barn swallow, which sits atop the vellum.
The double glass frame measures 8x10" and hangs from chain and lush velvet ribbon. The frame is a locket style and closes with a slide latch.
