Pipe Cleaner Critters!

While at Joy-joy's birthday lat week, we saw her dad's favorite new creative pursuit--working with pipe cleaners! It seems he picked up a few pipe cleaners one day, started doodling, and came up with his own techniques for creating creatures. I'm posting a flock of his birds.

I myself had not thought beyond the spindly nature of pipe cleaners, but I like how the birds have substance and dimension, and personality of their own. I love the details! Check out Mr. Ostrich's sweet face and expression, and his sturdy feet. He's about 3" high.

How happy and smug the chicken is!

Check out the phoenix's feathery wings and fantasy colors. They all make me happy! Fun stuff, Chris!
