The product of an artist's meticulous folding, creasing and hammering - all of which is done by hand - this Brass Seagull and Whale pairing suggests a miniature seascape born of manipulated metal. Find more of Ren's work in the artist's collection here.

Please note: The two brass pieces in this mobile are joined by an extremely delicate material similar to fishing line. To prevent snapping the line, take the utmost care when handling or hanging.
