This paper Blackbird sculpture is handmade from wire and paper mache and finished with a coat of cotton rag papers, corrugated card, text from a vintage gardening book, with a splash of inky colour too. It's then given a light coating of uv resistant paper varnish and the bird is then mounted on locally coppiced, seasoned oak.
Each piece is individually made by hand (Suzanne Breakwell's hands!) and no two pieces are ever the same so please do expect slight variations.
The piece measures 11cm high x 12.5cm beak to tail x 4cm across chest.
Your Blackbird will be made to order. Sometimes these Blackbirds are in stock and can be sent quickly so please do get in touch if you'd like one asap and we'll do our best to help.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
