John Hollington
Nestbox

The works of York-based designer John Hollington are informed by a perfect balance of nature and art. His sculptural nest boxes for the garden are driven by a wealth of material knowledge that he learned from his previous career working in Consulting Engineering, whilst referencing Modernist art and architecture.

John uses traditional sculpture materials such as oak and steel to create refined boxes for birds that are minimalist in feel. Each piece is designed to last and is guided by his deep-rooted understanding of longevity, carefully charring the wood through the Japanese Shou Sugi Ban technique.

An original nest box sits on the gables of John’s own home in York, providing a comfortable place for blue tits to nestle in each spring. The boxes create a beautiful and subtle contrast to the natural surrounding they sit in, and the geometric habitats attract anything from wrens and goldcrests to little house sparrows.

"I use a seasoned oak, which means it will be less likely to warp and split in the warm, summer months. And the charring process is a natural and sustainable way to make the wood weatherproof, whilst lending it a beautiful blackened patina."
