~Cokewell the Crow~

 I admit a fondness for crows. In the spring when their noisy caws explode onto the farm, my heart smiles, as a heralding of spring. My fondness seeps over to the folkart crow. Having made many of them, my all time favorite is a pattern from Kentucky Primitives that is dear to the heart of the designer Victoria Lynn, and has become so to me. Cokewell, from KP,  is a tall crow at 19.5". The naked crow is stunning enough by himself, but added on are the layers upon layers of grunge, that makes him crusty & extreme primitive! Cokewell, has 2 old shoe button eyes, 2 hand quilted attached wings, an aged 'apron' and perches atop an antique large filtering funnel, marked Coleman Schuyler Pat., Filtering Funnel, Coleman Lamp & Stove Co. Wichita, Kans. USA No. 1. in an old copper patina hue metal, that has paint splotches on it from another life as a funnel.
