A handmade concertina book with papercut owls.
The background comes from a painting of mine - I incorporated words from Shakespeare's 'Love's Labour's Lost' which contains the lines: "Then nightly sings the staring owl, To-whoo; To-whit, to-whoo, a merry note".
I was driving home one night over the hill and was accompanied for a few minutes by a silent, swooping barn owl flying beside my car. So I made a book ....
It has 7.5cm square covers.
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.
