“They’ve made it again,
Which means the globe’s still working”

This mobile was loosely inspired by the Ted Hughes poem “The Swifts” .

The birds, however, are Swallows because they are the birds which, for me, show the arrival of spring and they always call to mind the lines above.

The birds are made from black walnut, black walnut veneer and sycamore veneer, with a little bit of padauk at the head.
