Robin’s fan bird

It’s a nice feeling anytime someone buys something I’ve made: the idea that the person likes my work enough to want to swap some of their own time, skills and labour (through the exchange medium of money) for some of mine is a huge compliment. It’s especially pleasing when that person is a fellow craftsperson and someone I admire.
So you can imagine my inner glow when Robin Wood decided my fan birds are nice enough to want to buy one to for his van where he’ll see it pretty much every day.  I’ve got one hanging from my own rear-view mirror, it’s great to watch how it glides and banks as I drive around the windy roads of the Lake District.
