bird & brush: morning walk series || daughter of mountains

This is the original piece used to create one of the backgrounds for our new notecard series. We call this the morning walk series, because they are all inspired by Fia's early morning walks along the shoreline on Cape Cod.

This particular piece was created on a piece of cherry that stands on its own. 

a daughter of mountains, she taught herself to balance on uneven ground, to gather clues from the wind & the navigation of birds, until she learned the difference between being wild & being free

            repurposed & handcrafted...

            We have the deep joy of working with incredibly beautiful wood, sometimes from trees that are hundreds of years old... This means every piece that leaves our studio carries along its own history & is entirely unique.

            The wood species will vary according to what we can source from local small businesses that share our ethos.

            All our reclaimed wood products are made to order - shaped, sanded & waxed here in our studio. Woodcuts are done freehand. Unless stated otherwise, painted pieces have our unique bird & brush process: 4-6 layers of paint, graphite & ink (including a secret hand written wish between layers).

            Our wood pieces come with a small card telling a bit about us & the piece, & are either wrapped in repurposed pages from old books or in an organic cotton bag.
