A bird after my own heart! - The Bowerbird

Devon artist Jane Perkins describes herself as a "re-maker". She uses found objects to produce works of art and jewellery.

On her website she describes the bowerbird...

"The bowerbird from Australia builds a bower to attract mates... ...around which he places a variety of objects he has collected... ...In the case of the blue-black Satin Bowerbird, the particular attraction is to all things blue, from plastic drinking straws to clothes pegs and toothbrushes... ...The bird spends hours carefully sorting and arranging his collection, with each object in a specific place"
