A bespoke weathervane design we produced at the end of 2017 – we’ve just rediscovered it now while looking through customer photos sent in during 2018 in order to choose the winner of last years’ photo competition. We love how the deep blue sky makes the weathervane stand out! It’s also taken from a great angle, as all the letters are the right way round and the sail has spun so we have a very clear view of the design.
In terms of creating this weathervane design, the main difficulty was the Kingfisher. The customer comissioned this bespoke weathervane for her husband, who is a wildlife photographer. She wanted the bird to be in the image as well as the man taking the photograph, which was tricky because of the difference in size; if the bird was actually to scale it would have been so tiny you wouldn’t have seen it when mounted on the roof. By making the Kingfisher design part of the tail & therefore a seperate component to the photographer profile, we felt he seems as though he is in the foreground, rather than just being a disproportionately large bird, which I think was a risk if we’d made him part of the main laser cut design. A fantastic personalised gift for a wildlife and photography enthusiast!
