Bird&Bee's Fireside Companion

 

[click image left to enlarge]

The one and only fireside guide to burning our most sustainable heat source...wood! 
Available in two colourways: BIRD - Spanish Moss & BEE - Deep Vermillion)
A hearty guide to Britains forty-four best indigenous woods ~ what's good to burn and what's not so good. 

Background to the Fireside Companion
Back in the dark winter month of January 2009, I was fortunate enough to move into our new house with my daughter Ella. Nothing too special, just a Victorian, red brick terrace on a cul-de-sac of a vibrant, colourful community. What is special about the house is the heating and hot water supply (if managed well) is free! It is powered by a 3-way heating system, a wood burning stove, a southerly facing solar thermal panel and a back-up combi boiler.

Nearing the completion of our first, four seasons in the house - I estimated an annual saving of six hundred pounds a year on central heating and hot water costs. I now spend one Sunday afternoon every month,  managing our wood store for the house. I do this from May to November, which gives us enough seasoned wood for the whole year.

 From this process I decided to produce a chart which aides in the ‘firewood collection’ & selection process. Some types of wood are a waste of time to manage, others fill the house with gorgeous scents. Some need to be seasoned for a couple of years, others burn green. Traditional methods and folklore tales tell us all we need to know on the subject of ‘what’s good to burn’ and ‘what’s not’ - forgotten knowledge, ancient wisdom!

Printed in Deep Brown and Embossed Gold on a Spanish Moss or Deep Vermillion  - shimmers and shines by the fireside.

Beechwood fires burn bright & clear, If the logs are kept a year,
Chestnut only good they say, If for long, it’s laid away,
But Ash new or Ash old, Is fit for Queen with crown of Gold.

Birch & Fir logs burn too fast, Blaze up bright and do not last,
It is by the Irish said, Hawthorn bakes the sweetest bread,
Elmwood burns like churchyard Mold, E’en the very flames are cold,
But Ash green or Ash Brown, Is fit for Queen with Golden Crown,

Poplar gives a bitter Smoke, Fills your eyes and makes you choke,
Apple wood will scent your room, With an incense like perfume,
Oaken logs if dry and old, Will keep away the winter’s cold,
But Ash wet or Ash dry, A king shall warm his slippers by.

As the timber is reused it will inevitably have some marks, burnishes and blemishes which all add character and individuality to each and every one.
Whether it be an old wardrobe from a house up in Loxley or a roofing joist from an old terrace near the Manchester Ship Canal we will let you know what the timber was previously used for.

ENGLISH OAK Quercus robur
Probably the best known tree in Britain and an important feature of the English landscape. Living for hundreds of years, they have always been important for their timber. Oak wood has been used to build ships, houses and make furniture, but is also renowned for its use in casks for maturing wines and spirits.

Peace & Love Cards (10 Pack)

 

The International Language of Peace & Love
(pack contains 5 of each design) 

***Click on image to see more***

A simple idea. With all the war and conflict that seemed to be in the news everyday we decided to do something in our own small way. Why not spread the two words that were the opposite to the problems we were seeing everyday in the newspapers, on TV and in the media in general - Peace & Love!

With the global village of media and trade at it’s most connected ever - spreading these two words in one hundred different languages seemed to be an obvious step. We decided to make the cards purely typographic – using Bernard MT Condensed (a traditional block typeface), laying it out to maximise the coverage in a wallpaper style, with PEACE and LOVE at the centre of each. Checking the language idiosyncracies was no small feat. We contacted friends and colleagues around the world to ensure we had the right context for each translation. Thanks to everyone involved.

Oracular Pendulum

 

[click on image to see more]

Dr. Titus Bee’s Astounding Oracular Pendulum
Observe as the swing of the pendulum reaches into the future to discover your fate and beyond!
Ask questions for highly disputable answers!
Take your new, shiny pendulum and hold the end between thumb and forefinger of your left hand. Hold the Pendulum above the centre of the compass or an inch above the palm of your other hand and think deeply on a question your require an answer for. Closed questions with YES/ NO answers recommended.  

Warning self-hypnosis is not for the uninitiated!

• A north-south swing determines a YES answer
• An east-west swing determines a NO answer
• A clockwise motion determines a YES but ask more on the subject
• A counter-clockwise motion determines a NO and instruction to refine your question

This fun and beautiful brass pendulum measures 1 inch in length with and 8 inch brass chain and a gripping ball on the other end. Comes with predictive pendulum compass.

notes:
Dowsing was believed to have originated in the 15th Centursy in Germany. It was used to locate metals, gemstones and other articles. Ludwig Straniak (1879-1951), was a German mystic, Germanic revivalist and most notably a pendulum dowser. He was an architect and astrologer and was used by the German military in the Third Reich, not necessarily willingly. Straniak claimed to have a special gift for map pendulum dowsing. Straniak would dangle a pendulum over a given map and "locate" things. As a test, leaders of the German Navy requested him to locate the pocket battleship Prinz Eugen, then at sea. The Navy provided him with charts and were reportedly amazed that he had pinpointed the warship even though it was on a completely secret mission off the coast of Norway. This impressed the Navy leaders enough to take the workings of the occult unit of the SS more seriously. According to Karl Spiesberger in his book Reveal the Power of the Pendulum, Straniak believed that brass was the most suitable material for all kinds of dowsing and that even fruits such as apples, oranges, pears and lemons demonstrate a polarity at each end!

 

Harmony Drawing Pack

 

[click on image to see more]

Harmony the Spectacular Automatic Drawing Machine has been out and about alot this year.
Harmony is a new and innovative, interactive project by Bird&Bee. After coming across the inspiration for this project in a dusty old book I found in the attic of our family home in the Lincoln Wolds - I set about trying to build a device that can draw harmonic frequencies or music. After much trial and error in building such as device, I came across an old handcart  in a field in Lincolnshire. Forgotten and in need of rescuing,  I made an agreement with farmer and building the contraption onto the handcart - Harmony was born! Since then, Harmony has travelled far and wide, delighting and hypnotising all in her wake!  From Chatsworth House to the South Bank, Harmony has inspired and entertained people of all ages. Taking us back in time, to an era when innovation and invention magic was at the heart of British society. We at Bird&Bee want to inspire, interact and champion this nation as a hub for innovation and ideas, whilst reconnecting people with the rhythms of nature and our universe. 

We have decided to offer drawing packs for this wonderful Arts project. We use Harmony to delight crowds, create a little magic in the world and  further the advancement of learning Maths, Science and Music for all ages through making, doing and understanding. Please support this project and our important work by purchasing a pack. Perfect for children and adults alike! 

The Packs include the following goodies:

• A unique and original, signed drawing from Harmony (every drawing is unique). Drawings show the 'chord' that has been drawn and will be signed and numbered.
• An information insert that tells you all about the Harmony project, history, how it works and the science behind the contraption
• 2 x Harmony Postcards
• 1 x Harmony giftcard with envelope and sticker
• 1 x  'I've Found Harmony' bumper sticker
• 1 x Harmony Badge

All of which are set out in a legible format so you can navigate the whole of the year at a glance. 

At the foot of the chart is the key to all symbols used, Pagan Moon names, a handy guide to the Sunrise and Sunset times for every Sunday in the year and dates for Solstices, Equinoxes and Pagan Festivals.  The chart also makes it easy to tell when British Summer Time begins and ends.

    2012 - An Optimist's Apocalypse

     

    THE END OF THE WORLD IS NIGH....ISH!

    “the global catastrophe – hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes, synchronising and amplifying each other in a positive feedback loop that will spin out of control…should probably happen in ones, not tens, of years”. Alexey Dmitriev, Siberian Scientist 

    A few collectors pieces left. The 3 Pamphleteers is a small group of erudite thinkers and writers that embark upon a given subject with austere wit and imagination with the soul intention of dissecting a subject, idea or concept in 2000 words with grace and humour! This approach enables the reader to become instantly more intelligent and attractive to others - all within a 15 minute read! The first essay is entitled '2012 - An Optimist's Apocalypse', which attempts to dissect the notion of December 21st 2012 as being the end of the world. It sets out the realities behind the Mayan calendar and Geological activities (that will or will not occur on this potentially fateful date) in a thought provoking and humorous manner! 

    • Inspired by the literary festival, Bird&Bee is embarking on a series of essays.

    • The essays are a 15-minute digest that are hopefully informative, thought provoking, witty and fun.

    • Beautiful flowing, tactile design.

    • They are accompanied by some beautiful illustrations too.

    • Printed on 120g/sm Cyclotec 100% recycled stock.

    • A brainchild of Bird&Bee (support Big Ideas NOT Big Business)

    It's available for £2.95 from the 'Shoppe' and just might save your life!
