    Hello. I was at the art gallery on Sunday and had bought a ceramic bird sitting on a wire. When i was there no one could tell me who the artist was. The initials are SD. There is the blue ren version on the mantel still. If you could tell me that would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou for your time.
