    This piece is a bit more literal than I usually work. It was done for a fundraiser to support the Lamu Center of Preventative Health (LCPH), a free walk-in clinic serving the island community of Lamu, Kenya. The lamp attempts to evoke the feeling of the mangrove trees native to the Lamu coastline and the bird, an African pygmy kingfisher, is a common visitor to the mangroves. (I’m particularly fond of this little kingfisher & the job my brother, Dale, did in carving & painting it.)
