Monday 9 April 2012: Bird as Prophet
I am very sad to report that this plate cracked in the making. But I felt I had to share it with you. This is the Black Bird in the tree. The seventh of Schumann's Forest Scenes, titled "Bird as Prophet" A scene of fantasy in which a mysterious bird lives in the forest, foretelling the future. The buds change to light bulbs and light as he speaks the future.
He might have told me the plate was going to crack!
