Matt Sewell and V&A


New range of wooden birds and owl by Matt Sewell for V&A shop. Each bird is handmade and painted by Matt himself for V&A spring/summer 2012 collection. He drew the inspiration for his birds from V&A’s museum collection. For example: The Little Owl was based on an etching from the earliest hand-colored book of English birds, The Natural History of Birds by Eleazar Albin (1731-8).

{Clockwise: Little Owl, Nuthatch and Strawberry Thief}

Sweet! I think they'd look great in an owl-themed nursery. Or in any other room, really.
