This owl is a paper sculpture, hand printed in silvery grey tones. His markings are unique to him, using a mono screen printing process, where patterns are drawn freehand onto a silkscreen.
He is made from 300 gsm recycled paper and varnished with a UV protective lacquer. Metallic lustres have been used to give his feathers a soft shimmery quality, reminiscent of real feathers.
He has big yellow eyes and a white face, with the trademark plumicorns (eyebrow feathers) and long feathers covering his beak of the white faced owl.
He perches on a wreath festooned with pink cherry blossom. The little flowers are in two shades of pink, with paler petals and a brighter middle.
Suspended on invisible fishing line, with a wire hook, ready to attach to the wall via a picture hook or nail tack.
Dimensions: 44cm (17 inches) tall, 44cm (17 inches) wide, 13cm (5 inches) deep.
Blossom can be made to order in any colour you might fancy - just get in touch.
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.
