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.
