Poetry Birds are the newest creation from my constant river of inspirations and imaginations. They were a direct result of a vivid dream I had of a Flock of Beautiful Surreal Doves carrying bits of Poetry in their golden beaks. These Simple and Joy-Full Birds are a tangible recreation of that dream and they are imbued with Words from my wanderings, whether it be snippets of famous poems, wee positive sayings or just a few soulful musings from my own mind.

*´♥.•NOTE~ The Poetry Bird ("Love Is Touching Souls") you will receive if you purchase this listing is the one in the first, second and third Thumbnail photos, the last photo I have grouped together 3 of my other Poetry Birds so you can see what they would look like in a "Flock of Words and Wings", aren't they Beautiful?
This beautiful Bird wall hanging is made from rolled out stoneware clay that has been completely hand cut, (body, wings, tail pieces) and I do not use forms or patterns, so every one is totally unique and different. While the clay is still "wet" I have impressed the wings and tails with a variety of stamps including Vintage textile blocks from India that are about 100 years old,(and carved out of pear wood!), clay stamps I have made myself and even pieces of shells and pods I have collected on my journeys. I use Vintage letterpress wooden stamps for the words on my Poetry Birds.
After the Birds have been fired the first time I applied stains and then rubbed them off here and there to give the piece a rustic look, then I added a few colored glazes to accentuate the stamped designs on the wings and tails. Each Bird has been fired a second time for durability and strength to create an inspiring piece that can be hung indoors or outside in a protected area. On the back of each bird I have created a clay loop and then attached a hanger made from recycled copper wire and there is a smaller, second hanger by the tail, so you can position the bird to fly either straight or tilting slightly upward....soaring into the Universe!
The Poetry Bird is about 20" wide and 9 1/2" at it's tallest, down by the "Tail Feathers" and is signed and dated on the back by yours truly.
Thank you for stopping by and looking at my new Poetry Birds!
Peace and smiles....Kristin
