In this collection I’ve created a set of delicate bird’s nests made from turned maple bowls, carved figures, twigs and feathers.

A Little Peace is a bit of a play on words. The Eagle is a time-honoured symbol of peace and honour in Northwest Coast cultures, but the title also refers to the very young chicks in the nest. They are a soft downy gray, snug among the feathers and awaiting a meal from their parents.
