Owl King and Chinese Warrior got a dip in water, tea, and coffee, were hung out to dry, and eventually became two box kites.

Thanks Meg, I’m glad you like them. They collapse quite easily and would not be too hard to ship. These ones don’t fly (balsa is too weak at this size) so you can consider them art mobiles, but if I made them with spruce spars they would fly. If your friend wants one that flies she is welcome to commission one (or more). One more note – these two won’t be available until the end of June, as they are going to be in another show in Palm Beach Gardens. Feel free to email me for more information!
