'finding beauty in the everyday, the once loved, the almost lost...'
The Aviary incorporates original illustration work with vintage ephemera to create beautiful and useful handmade things.
Designer-makers and Fine Art graduates, Ben and Victoria first began working together in 2010 but The Aviary as it is now became fully realized in Spring 2013.
Using delicate fragments of pre-loved objects as the base of many designs, there's an obvious nostalgia apparent in many pieces, from functional jewellery to papergoods and gifts.
Designed and made in the UK, all items incorporate eco-friendly, reclaimed or recycled materials. Art prints and new homeware pieces are also produced locally, sustainably and utilizing organic materials.
