Birds






For my crit just before Christmas I decided to go bigger with the birds. The plan was to go really big but it took a lot longer than I thought to cut them all out by hand (definitely need to talk to laser cutting!). They are all smaller than A5 again so are very intricate, the birds are split to that they emerge from the wall in 3D and glued to the ends of different length pins. The group was inspired by the Victorian Hummingbird cabinets at The Natural History Museum in London, however these have more of an innocence about them...
