This owl is inspired by The Saltley Stories archive, produced by Norton Hall in Saltley and from artist Grayson Perry and his pottery work. The design features phrases in Urdu, Romanian, Hindi and English alongside mehndi patterns and imagery from sacred geometry. The design is intended to reflect both the local community and its connection to the environment.
