Eider duck, You made your bed', wool bird sculpture
Part of a sea bird series I made.
Eider duck feathers have filled bedding for a long time, now it is licensed and only a few can gather the feathers and they are very expensive.
This is a male duck which probably doesn't contribute much to the downy nests but, like most male birds is more striking looking than the brown , speckled female...and less difficult to felt with it's stylish feathers!
I made a mini bed, with pillow and embroidered cover 'You made' on one side and 'your bed' on the other.
