My heart in hiding stirred for a bird

The achieve of, the mastery of the thing!

Gerard Manley Hopkins knew his kestrels.  The words of his famous poem  come back to me whenever I watch kestrels hunting over nearby Swifts Hill. This piece now forms part of the collection of Nature in Art Museum & Gallery, near Gloucester.

Wall piece: fused and slumped wing forms with dichroic details mounted on fused and enamelled glass base with the words of the poem engraved  as tail feathers.
