Danish Wooden Sculptures by Architectmade

Paul Anker Hansen handmade his first wooden owl in 1960 for the Danish company Architectmade. The wooden owl sculpture is still crafted by hand at a small wood shop in Denmark in Danish oak. The owl's head is attached to the body with a strong magnet which allows the head to tilt and move in different directions creating distinctive expressions. 

Architectmade is a Danish brand specializing in offering exclusive products designed by famous architects from the 1950's and 60's including Kristian Vedel. Kristian Vedel's very expressive BIRD series is another masterpiece that I loved from the Architetmade. These birds "can express happiness, sadness and curiosity, living alone or together as a family." Absolutely a treasure to own! Also available here and here.
