"We've worked with Habitat for Humanity for several years on various projects. This piece was created for an annual fundraiser titled ‘Birdfest,’ a springtime event where artists from around the community create birdhouses and various other forms of garden art for auction. The event typically will raise enough for a new home to be built for a qualifying family. The guitar was bought at a pawn shop around the corner for $20. We sanded down the finish, and sectioned the piece into quadrants; each creative took turns working on specific sections, then passed it onto the next designer. It went around several times, with various constructions and additions being added before completion."
