Avocets Cushion

Create a tranquil oasis in your home and bring the coast a little closer with these exquisite individually handcrafted Avocets cushions by Karen Walshe.
 
Looking fabulous scattered on sofa or bed, these soft white cushions perfectly capture the elegance of these beautiful wading birds; each uses an appliqué technique reminiscent of naive pencil drawings.
 
The front depicts three pretty blue avocets, whilst the back is finished with a simple button fastening.
 
In the wild Avocets feed on small invertebrates which they sift out of the water by sweeping their slightly upturned bills from side to side.
 
Slightly quirky and characterised by a naivety of design, Karen tries to capture something of the essence of these beautiful birds in her work.

Inspiration is never far away as she lives in the lovely Devon estuary town of Topsham which is full of seagulls and home to number of elegant wading birds.
 
Each cover is removable and includes a soft, plump duck feather insert. Covers can be spot cleaned or hand washed.
