Raven bijou block

Raven bijou block


We were delighted when local ‘wild wood’ artist Tanya Hinton agreed to a special FOLDE commission of bijoux blocks, a series of small but perfectly formed animals painted on reclaimed blocks of pine.


We have two of each animal available; each is an individual work of art in miniature. We love the way Tanya captures the character of the raven, an intelligent and adaptable bird. They’re known for their playful and acrobat nature, and can even talk. Perhaps their most famous modern role is in protecting the Tower of London, but did you know that Odin (the Viking god) was often accompanied by two ravens called Huginn and Munnin (translated as “thought” and “memory”).


We rather like the idea of winged thoughts and memories, and hope you do too.


Material: Oil on pine, gold leaf highlight

  • Keeping it local

    Tanya Hinton’s studio is just over the border in Wiltshire. Having painted on canvas for many years, she discovered working on wood around eight years ago and has never looked back. Each piece is a ready-made landscape, a habitat for a wild and beautiful animal.

    The wood Tanya uses is found, discarded or donated. Each of her artworks is therefore unique with its own history.
