The Icelandic designer Sigurjón Pálsson has created a range of characterful wooden birds. The Shorebirds are turned from solid oak and their simple unadorned silhouette gives them an almost stylized expression. At the same time, a great deal of care has been paid to the small details such as variations in body thicknesses, neck length, and the positioning of the legs and beak. This gives all three birds their own unique personality and allows the design to come alive.
The largest of the three birds is inspired by the curlew, with its long neck and distinguished, downwardly bent beak. It is an aristocratic creature. Its long legs take slow, well-considered steps while looking cautiously around. The middle-sized bird is alert and active like a redshank. This elegant bird is often to be found with other wading birds. Finally, we have the sandpiper; a sociable little bird, often to be found in large flocks.
