Little OwlTM Smart Crafts online project presents our collection of owls.
They come to us from different parts of the world. We buy them during our business and tourist trips and receive them as presents from our foreign guests.
Looking at owl sculptures I love the way they are created.
But even more I appreciate how the very image of an owl is used by designers for different objects.
Have a look!
a little round-shaped owl from Austria,
a white polar owl from William Shakespear motherland (Stratford-upon-Avon),
a tiny brown owl from Nottingham (a hello from Robin Hood),
a handmade cosmetics bag with an owl family ("Masters` Golden Hands" Craft Show, Kiev, August 2011)
The second row with bigger owls, left to right:
The two owls flying above:
a macrame owl,
a crochet owl (Teddy-bear Show in Kiev, December 2010).
A shop in Cincinnati, OH
represents a collection of items,
He created a wide range of things, either owl-shaped or decorated with images of owls.
bags and rucksacks,
trinkets and charms,
a case for spectacles, a vacuum flask,
a bottle for babies,
a bar of soap, and even a starling-house!!!
And this is a present from Spane.
This owl is a part of
Mosaic Animal Collection "BARCINO".
Visitign their Web-site for inspiration
is strongly recommended:
A designer team from Great Britain (https://uk.accessorize.com/) is developing a new collection each season. And each time their collection has a different HERO (swallows, panda, dragon-flies, butterflies, etc.) I visited their shop just in time - the new collection with owls had just arrived.
And one more owl, it is from Russia. Lampwork by Maria Mazai.
Felted little owls (here they are).
And this owl is worked in quilling
Until then - Happy stitching and...
