In early 2016, I wove this "winged nest" which forms part of the front of house display for the two-part play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. The majority of the nest is woven with Somerset willow, with a metal frame for support. 

The nest was kept under wraps until the recent unveiling at the Palace Theatre.  I worked with Aden Hynes and his talented team at  Sculpture Studios, who made the figure in the nest and have expertise in theatre set building, polystyrene carving, exhibition set building and more.

The associated image is found on the cover of the book -  "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II" by Jack Thorne, which is based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, Thorne and John Tiffany. It follows Harry as an employee of the Ministry of Magic, husband and father of three kids.  The play opened with rave reviews.

A very interesting & enchanting project, which I enjoyed immensely.  If you would like your very own nest, photographs of similar garden structures  can be found in the Bespoke and Art & Sculpture sections of this website.
