Continuing a series of birds for our gallery, here Jennifer has created a beautiful horned lark. Unlike most other larks, this is a distinctive-looking species on the ground, mainly brown-grey above and pale below, with a striking black and yellow face pattern. Except for the central feathers, the tail is mostly black, contrasting with the paler body; this contrast is especially noticeable when the bird is in flight. The horned lark is a bird that lives throughout much of North America, including New Mexico.

Pay close attention to the wings and head and face. Jennifer’s exquisite design work is so evident here. It is hard to believe she can be so remarkably precise on such small areas of the clay.
