Hand made wooden bird. Spotted Sandpiper feigning a broken wing to distract predators away from its nest. Entirely hand crafted from delicate carving to detailed painting, and finishing with wax polish. Fairly traded using sustainable softwood and non toxic paints. Designed in Canada by Aviologie. Anna & David create unique birds derived from a meeting between indigenous folk art and western aesthetics. From home on Vancouver Island, surrounded by the sea, mountains and and abundance of birds, they have much to inspire them and offer designs that bring simple yet refined examples of natures greatest inspiration. They have been working closely with the same three families of carvers for over 7 years, drawing on the villages centuries old techniques to realize beautiful products. Using Albesia and Coffee wood, these fast growing timbers come from sustainable farming practices for continued harvest and regrowth.
