Here is a preview of the birds that will be displayed by paper artist Andy Singleton, who had been commissioned to create a hand-crafted paper installation for the recent opening of The Liberty Stationery Room on March 10th, which includes a three-metre long window installation and two framed wall pieces. They unveiled a whimsical and romantic set of three woodland scenes called ‘They loved What They Found’. The three pieces are based around the idea of nesting birds. For more information and pictures regarding the installation please visit Andy’s blog.
“Each piece will centre on a tree, with numerous birds flying around collecting beautiful pieces of Liberty stationery plus paper twigs, leaves, and fragments of romantic poetry with which to build their nests. All three pieces will be intricately layered and made using cut and folded paper with blue, green and purple birds on a backdrop of brown and green woodland collecting black, white and bronze stationery items.” — Crafts Council
