This large, freestanding paper sculpture depicts a crow and he is one of a kind. He is made with handprinted papers in deep black shades. Metallic lustres have been added to the paper, so that his feathers have a gentle metallic hue of green, blue and purple and silver, in different areas of his body. In dim light he looks black, but he shimmers in the sunshine, aided in part by his UV protective lacquer, which has a satin sheen. His beak is dark grey and his eyes are black. His body is completely covered in layers of hand cut feathers. The making process ensures that he is one of a kind. He balances on two paper wrapped steel wire feet, and he rocks gentle when you press down on his beak, designed so that he's hard to topple over! This distinguished gentleman would certainly make a statement on your desk or mantlepiece.
Made from recycled, handprinted 300 gsm paper (which is a really sturdy cardstock).
All materials and processes are vegan.
Varnished with a UV protective lacquer.
All he needs is a tickle with a feather/microfibre duster every now and then.
38 cm from break to tail, 15 cm wide at his shoulders.

More from this Co
Welcome to the paper sculpture menagerie. My name is Kate and I make handmade paper sculptures to bring cheer to your décor. Every one of my pieces is one of a kind, made from recycled 300 gsm paper (really sturdy cardstock). Each design is tested for durability, and they are varnished with a UV protective lacquer to seal their edges and protect their vibrant colours. Each sculpture is designed, individually printed, cut, assembled and embellished entirely by hand to make sure each and every one has its own unique character. Birds are my most favourite subject. I also make flowers and other wildlife. I am inspired by countryside walks and garden visitors. I often describe myself as a seasonal maker, as I can often be found at my desk making cosy pieces in the autumn and bright, cheerful blooms in the summertime. I’ve been making my sculptures for over 15 years now, and my work aims to evoke the joy I find in the great outdoors. I do hope they make you smile.
