Last spring, I had the good fortune to have several encounters with a family of barred owls, in the little woodland near my home. First I saw one adult, then the next visit I saw two. Then one day I came upon two fluffy owlets perched high in the trees - magical. The little family let me visit several times in the early evenings when they were just waking up. This little owl was inspired by my enchantment with these often elusive creatures. He is stitched up in hand dyed brown wool felt and a vintage feedsack, along with a natural dyed piece of silk noile for his beak. The owl has wire feet wrapped in fabric. He will perch happily on a shelf or branch, watching quietly over your home - and perhaps scooping up any mice that dare to venture in!
This piece is one of a kind and made with care, and measures 6.5" tall. It is made and stored in a smoke and pet free home.
