Cages in the Studio

A Place for my Heart

I love this tall, delicate cage with its ceramic base, it stands about 40cm tall and the base is 12cm wide. The base is press-moulded with the heads of a little frozen charlotte doll.

detail of 'a place for my heart' - the wire is black annealed iron and although sturdy is crushable and delicate.

All the wire work is worked by hand.

Butterfly Cage

Butterfly cage is the small round one on the left and can hang all sorts of found items inside.
The little cage in the centre is also for sale with the hanging feather and it's called 'Cock Robin'

This image also shows 'Cock Robin'

...who killed cock Robin? I said the sparrow with my bow and arrow'

Sarah Wiseman Gallery

Sarah Wiseman Gallery in Oxford are currently showing my new work including Twisted Funnel above.
I'm really like the way the little birds have gained in confidence...they all look so happy and have plenty to sing about! Maybe they enjoyed the long warm summer this year....

My Etsy Shop!

Well I finally did it after lots of procrastinating and faffing about! I decided to call my shop Ironsongbird... seemed appropriate and is a way of separating my wire work from the ceramic.
Over the next few weeks I shall endeavour to build up some stock and will begin accepting overseas
customers, so keep watching!
Click on the link - just in the left hand column and it will take you directly to my Etsy page.
