Birds Of A Feather

I just spotted this helmet by Jordan Askill on the Another Magazine website. Appropriately enough, for a man inspired by all things sci-fi, it’s called Battle Cat (Swarm Of Swallows on Water).

It features in the beautiful video for We Want War by These New Puritans, which stars Jordan and was directed by his brother, Daniel. Check it here.

The best bit is that if you look closely, the helmet’s made of dozens of tiny birds.

It reminds me a lot of the piece Jordan made to accompany the launch of my book at Colette. The sculpture – created using rapid prototyping – became the starting point for the one off Birds Protect ring (below) which is made from 18ct white and yellow gold. Love, love, love It.
