"Nothing is invented, for it's written in nature first. 

Antoni Gaudi

The structure that holds the Bird's Library is an altered antique clock case. The exterior surface is covered with mirror pieces and iridescent blue acrylic, changing its impact to one that is light and airy - air being appropriate to the life of birds.  The top two images were photographed with a white baffle.  The bottom photograph shows how the library all but disappears into its reflections.

Two ceramic owls perch on the roof's pedestals.  Since ancient times owls have been symbols of wisdom.

The shelving inside the library is also covered in mirrors and the walls are collaged with images of birds.

The books in the Bird's Library so far have all been created with collage images and come in two sizes.  The topics are wide-ranging and include birds napping in bed,  or accompanying people who wear a variety of uniforms, or enjoying fruit.
