Rowan developed the beautiful red glass eye from my original sketches. This became one of the most attractive parts of the design, especially located in front of the Silver Birches at this time of the year.....this was a magical result, as I had not visited the site until installation day!
The patching look of the copper was done by choice, as I wanted it to look salvaged and cobbled together. Ziggy loves this as she is an avid decoupage artist.
Ironically, the re-purposed circle that the Raven is flying across (representing the moon) came to us during the time of this project......and was originally a fire pit frame!!!!!
Some went on the sign, while others were made into hanging mobiles for her to hang around her new home. Incidentally Zig was able to start over again in an incredible home and property deep in the Otways, far from the "slow ocean road"
At the time though, Ziggy's patience was weighing heavily on me.........then I had a thought of a magical gift to not only say Thank you but to also help promote her healing........

Ziggy, it was an honour to work with you on this project.
