The owl: searing eyes, dappled feathers, haunting nocturnal presence, and artist Anna-Wili Highfield’s latest obsession. Her 3D animal sculptures are all about capturing the energy, movement and essence of the enchanting creatures they represent, and now they’re wearable. Highfield is offering limited edition, locally printed silk scarves based on her beloved owl motif to be replaced next year by another of her furred or feathered muses. Get in quick – available through her website.
