Hand made, life size Barn owl wall light. Each one is lovingly hand made by myself.
The body is carved from wood, the wings have a wire frame and then each feather is hand cut then placed on the wing. The body and face are hand painted with acrylic paints, the eyes made from clay, painted and then varnished to give them a lovely life-like shine. The legs and feet are made from metal wire and grip the vintage light bulb and socket.
A dramatic and beautiful piece for any wall, with a wingspan of nearly a meter this barn owl is life size. The wings are made from 180gsm watercolour paper sprayed with matt varnish to keep them safe from discolouration and dust.
The mounting the barn owl is on can be of any shape or finish, please specify when you place your order. Also as each piece is made to order I can add any details or changes you’d like. Each one is made from scratch and so there will be slight differences in character from this piece pictured, but all will be beautiful and friendly.
From the genius Mustard crew we are pleased to bring to mzube a very quirky kitchen addition which is Cleverly designed to make it stable against the edge of the kitchen counter whilst the vertical drip can be easily removed to make a completely flat worktop saver.
These pieces make reference to Memento Mori, a theme often depicted in art and Classical antiquity. They are luxuriously over stuffed offering a Bourgeois comfort, borrowing from the look of Victorian parlor furniture. They convey an air of humour and of the bizarre.
The chairs are old pieces fully reconditioned and upholstered. As a process this allows Sam to embroider a new history into them and makes each one slightly different. The shape of the chair allows the print to flow into the chair structure, giving a figurative character and seeming to personify the piece. The images are sourced from old medical journals. They are adapted and then digitally printed on Velvet.
