Birds


So...what about the birds...



Well a wee while back a lovely little friend asked would I make her a bird for a bird cage she had been bought. Making the bird was a really fun little project and there was something really delightful about him so I set about turning a whole bunch of drawings I had done of birds into little beings..
The first batch was exhibited at 'Castor and Pollux' in Brighton last year...and it kind of spiralled from there.
It seems there are a great many people who love birds as much as I do and I've had the great pleasure of making them for weddings, as mobiles for nurseries and for one lady who wanted a whole little flock of them to decorate her guest room.
The birds on canvas have been featured in the British edition of 'Elle Decoration' 2007,




and the birds themselves in 'Selvedge' 2008.


They have been exhibited at some lovely little craft galleries across the country, currently showing at 'Diana Porter Contemporary Jewellery', Bristol, 'The Edge Gallery', Lancaster and 'Pelham House Gallery' in Cowes, Isle of Wright.
Later this year they will be at 'The Craft Centre and Design Gallery', Leeds and 'Gallerie Handwerk', Munchen, Germany.
I'm really delighted at how many people have said such lovely things about the birds...it makes all the hard work very worth while!

Prices for the birds start around £59...sizing and prices vary...please just ask if you are interested...

These birds are fantastic. Such beauties. I found your blog through the MADE blog. Love designer/maker work. I'm a maker too.

They would fit in very well in my shop/gallery which is in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire. www.radiancelighting.co.uk I have lots of hanging things - decorations and mobiles. Do you have any pictures of your mobiles? Do you make individual flying birds????

Looking forward to hearing from you.
