Mirror (Again)

Paper-Cut 18 x 27 cm
Two small birds have met their end after connecting with the glass sliding doors at the front of our house. These doors are right beside my desk and it's quite upsetting to hear the stomach-churning thud, and then find the poor little creature unrescue-able on the front deck. I think the glass is reflecting the big spotted gums in our front yard, and therefore looks like a safe place to dart into when you're being chased by a spinebill... or whatever they were up to. I've since hung suncatchers in front of the glass to try and stop it happening again. 

Anyhow, that's the story behind this paper-cut design, which if you can imagine a little, is a magic mirror that reflects the trees and also allows small birds to pass through and find refuge.


  1. I love this it's so beautiful and delicate. Same thing happens with our bedroom window but with pigeons - that is a big crash!

  2. This is beautiful! Absolutely lovely!
