This “Feelin’ Good” Brush sculpture, hangs from the wall, on a little ring. Vintage 1930’s wooden brush, in all its wonderful timeworn condition, scattered with handmade wirework poppies and buttercups. Rising from this is a beautiful bluebird – an early 1900’s silver and enamel brooch.
The words “birds flyin’ high, you know how I feel” are stamped on to vintage red leather.
In total is measures 27cm high (to the top of the bluebird, from the bottom of the bush handle – there is an extra 15cm of original string that also hangs below that additionally) x 11cm wide.
Made from repurposed vintage and antique objects, and as such, my show signs of being timeworn.
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.
