Paper Taxidermy Birds Housed In Vintage Tins by Colette Bain

Colette Bain is an artist based in North Lancashire. The self-taught artist has been working on a series of paper taxidermy birds for her brand Emma's Wolf. She named her business after her daughter's name and her obsession for wolves. Colette created her very first paper mache piece for her daughter and it was obviously a wolf. She enjoyed the process so much that she started making things for friends using ephemera, old broken toys and faded tins.

Fast forward today, she is creating beautiful unique paper mache bird sculptures that are hand-painted and housed inside vintage tins. The artist paints tins with trees, mountains, and beautiful skies that provide just the perfect background to her birds.

You can find her work at the upcoming Christmas Exhibition at Galerie Handwerk, Munich from Nov 27th to Dec 28th 2019.  To see more work by the artist go to Instagram.
