Whimsical Nature: Fiber Birds is on display at the University of Michigan's Taubman Health Center through October 10.
I met Mary last fall at the Renegade Craft Show in Chicago. We were neighbors and I fell in love with her beautifully crafted birds made from recycled thrift store finds. She is also a kind, kind soul. I especially love the pieces made from what appears to be suiting material—tweeds and herringbone and the like—such as the killdeer above. Each bird or set of birds is thoughtfully displayed with natural elements—perched on a branch, or marching across a crosscut slice of log.
