Building it

The set of 5 ducklings took about 3 weeks to design and build.  The baby duckling nestled under the father duck is actually structural, in that it masks the steel bar that keeps the duck fastened down.

My assistant Jung Ah spent a lot of time prototyping the ducklings, getting their head and facial features just right at this scale was challenging.  She spent an entire week sitting around making duck faces.
