Peregrine Flight 

1989 by Ross Matteson   bronze    37 x 12 x 12 inches   edition size 20   Sold Out Edition

Peregrine Flight  was inspired by the usually only glimpsed flight of the peregrine falcon.   This sculpture marked a turning point for me - not so much in the simple use of a smooth form, but in the confidence I had gained in applying patinas or color to bronze.   The silver nitrate patterning was really the element needed to put this bird into flight.
