Description of The Flight of Icarus

Swirls of gold, red, white, and blue mix as the small ceramic bird in blue, appears to be melting.

The bird is three dimensional. I made the bird from ceramic clay and after firing mounted it on the board before the encaustic wax was applied.

The bird acts like a sun dial as the ambient light in the environment casts shadows from the bird into varying shapes onto the background; creating a flying effect.
