Artist's description:

I was so excited to find this driftwood birdhouse. I wanted to try and keep the simplicity of the piece, so I felt a fairy-tale theme would lend itself to it. I put hinges on the side to make a door so that I could to build a room.
I designed the furniture from driftwood and the little boat from a pistachio nutshell and canvas fabric. I added a few little personal effects to complement the scene such as my handmade little pencils in a jar, radio, books, lamp along with a mans world atlas watch face and a flight plan on the wall.

The story in my head is that Mr Martin stops off here at his holiday home every summer to works out his flight plan for the winter. It lights up at night from the lamp and gives great pleasure in viewing into it...


it hangs on a screw in the wall and is 28cm high 17 cm wide and 17cm dept..
