" The Changeling"
Betwixt the twilight and the dawn,
What a strange creature I've stumbled upon.
Caught in a world neither here nor there
And I cannot help but stop to stare!
Near two paths that intertwined,
Is the changeling that I did find.
Gleefully grinning from ear to ear,
That his transition is so near!
From a "Changeling" into a raven,
When the skies will be his haven.
So I quietly turn and walk away,
Never to forget what I spied this day.

My challenge for HA31, was to make an ornament of a pooka also known as a changeling, shapeshifter or goblin, whose choice, when transforming is usually a black being. Another group challenge, the fabulous AHQU, was "Crows". Since
I chose to make mine turning into a raven, it worked for both.
He has an 8-1/2" circumference and approximately 3-1/2" tall,made from paperclay over an unopened smooth ornamental gourd. He is not a hanging ornament, but a shelf sitter. He also has the unintentional look of "Shrek"..lol!
Here are some more pic's of him in progress.
A bit scarey looking prior to the eye paint, he may be small but he has a great big personality.
