Bird on a branch Espresso
The bird is from an image I liked on the inside of a 1950s book cover. I added the little bit of branch and the flower just behind the handle. The stamp on the base is made from a trade token I found on the foreshore of the Thames a few years ago. The handle has a cracked detail that I have edged with gold , referencing the Japanese art of Kintsugi (repairing pottery).
