A few more sculptures I found… some abstract, some representational… some representing the essence or feeling of flight, while others make use of materials that we associate with flight.
Artist Charlotte Mayer’s goal was to capture the true freedom that the human spirit seeks in the above sculpture titled “Flight”.
This peace resides outside the MOCA Art Gallery in Los Angeles. Artist Nancy Rubins used approximately 1000 pounds of stainless steel wire to construct together thousands of airplane parts. Impressive!
“Flight Fantasy” by artist David Hammons, 1978
“Bird In Flight” by artist Curtis Jere, 1970’s
In keeping with this month’s theme, I thought I’d share some flight related artwork throughout the month that is inspiring me. In this post I wanted to focus on birds as symbols of flight. Unfortunately, I have not been able to track down the names of all artists, but have included them where I was able.

While doing some more research for my project this month, I was delighted to come across the work (and fun!) of Lauren Alane. She has some scrumptiously cute felted birds. I think my favorites are the owls with glasses and the two birds listening to music together – so full of personality!
She also does some freakin adorable custom wedding toppers that include details specific to you and your hunny. Very clever. Check out more at her website, laurenalane.com or her Etsy shop.
Thanks Lauren for putting your creativity out there! =)
