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).
