The intersection of nature and the artificial is the inspiration behind the design. The raven (an embodiment of nature) covets all things sparkly. Much like ourselves.

Inspiration comes from where nature and the urban fabric intersects. The raven is the embodiement of nature, which still thrives in modern society, within the urban realm. It´s attracted to things that glitter like humans. This is interpreted in sculptural form, mixture of what is conceived as home for the raven, the nest. The rawness of home is interpreted in the choice and treatment of the material, the combination of what glitters.
