Heather Shaw

Inspired by the concept of pillows as blank canvases, art history buff and textiles expert Heather Shaw set off on a crafty journey around 1995--and continues exploring her zeal for art and design with her whimsical line of embroidered pillows.

Inspired by natural materials, simple lines and soothing palettes, Shaw first explored stenciling and screen-printing motifs onto organic fabrics, finishing each piece with striking silhouettes of original embroidery. Since becoming a mother and an aunt, Shaw has integrated playful motifs and iconic childhood images into her work.

Shaw graduated with a degree in Textiles from art school in her native region of eastern Canada, where she currently handcrafts every whimsical pillow with care from the creative bunker of her home studio in Toronto. collection

    Arrived Broken

        Comments about SPARKLE BIRD MOBILE:

        Arrived broken. Seems that the nail used to secure the bird to the twig split the twig in half.
        it is just a slender twig so would be fairly easy to split with even a thin nail.

        It is not as eye catching in person as it is in the catalog. When I saw it in the catalog, I was 'smitten'. I was disappointed when I opened the box and even more so when I discovered it was broken.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Customer service promptly replaced my broken bird; however, I had paid for it to be gift boxed to save me the hassle. When the new bird arrived it was not gift boxed and I had to 'gift-box' and tie up the ribbon myself. Annoyed that I paid for a service that I didn't receive.

              I bought this sweet little bird as a gift for an expecting mother. I loved it so much I bought one for myself. It adds such a unique little sparkle to a room and is just cheery! I am putting this one in my kitchen window. I think its a great gift for just about any occasion, just be sure to buy one for yourself too!

              Love this product! I saw it while shopping for a gift and had to get it for my self. Even cuter in person than it looks online. Being hand made I was worried it would look cheap but the quality is great. I hung it by my bedroom window and when the light hits it in morning the little bird sparkles and shines. A great little touch to add interest to any room. Would be great for anyone with a natural or eclectic style. Would make a great gift. I highly recommend it!

                A gorgeous and unique work of art. I'm giving this as a thank you gift, though I wouldn't mind ordering one for myself. It is larger than I had anticipated, but none the less sweet.
