A hand-carved walnut sculpture of a bird, by American woodworker Earl M. Brinton.
His birds have a warm sensuality and beautiful shape and are in the collection of amongst others the National Wildlife Gallery of Art and the Smithsonian Institution.. As his wife Mary says in an interview with Bay Weekly; it’s also the way he coaxes “the spirit from the wood,” using the grain to achieve specific features.
This power transforms the carving into sculpture, the point at which craft becomes art.
Signed by Brinton with the year of creation (1968).
