        Bright, quirky and quintessentially British, Matt Sewell has createdthree handmade and painted wooden birds exclusively for the V&AShop inspired by the Museum's collections. Raised on a diet ofornithology, graffiti, psychedelic music and mythology, Sewell'sworkembraces the British landscape and the magical nature found in thetrees and panoramas of his rural surroundings. Covering a huge range ofmedia, Sewell's work has appeared as animations for Crown Paint,illustrations for The Guardian,on designs for clothing for Levis andHelly Hansen as well as walls around the world.

        Playing on Sewell's recent projects concerning British bird watching and his personal passion for it, he was drawn to the V&A archives. Little Owl was spotted  in the earliest hand coloured book of English birds, The Natural History of Birds by Eleazar Albin published between 1731-8. Found in the National Art Library, the title comprises 306 hand coloured etchings divided into three volumes.

        Each bird is handmade and painted by Sewell from reclaimed wood and FSCaccredited pine and comes in a hand printed nesting box customized forthe V&A.

        Made in Britain.
