Immersed Birds: bird wood sculptures with watercolor plumage by Moisés Hernández

In his series titled Immersed Birds, Mexican designer Moisés Hernández has created a gorgeous set of elegant bird wooden sculptures softly painted with diluted watercolor layers. Each piece mimics the real plumage colors of the bird which the shape it was inspired: toucan, hummingbird, and Mexican quetzal.

In an attempt of generating a balanced dialogue between machine made and handmade objects, we made soft and continuous shapes milled with CNC technology contrasted with handmade painting done by immersion in coloured water, an experimental technique we developed for this project, which gives the birds a unique personality. This technique of painting allows to achieve an interesting texture of intersections and transparency made by layers of colour that resembles the plumage of birds. The amount of colour, hue and the way sections cross one another depends on the time and position the wood is plunged.
