A clay bird feeder, covered with imprinted & applied real leaves. A special treat for your birds! Wouldn't this look nice hanging in your yard?

I started by rolling out two circles of clay with my rolling pin. I molded them into bowl shapes, and to add interest, I pressed and applied several leaves. I love finding leaves with "bug bites", both on the leaves and the stems - it makes them appear more realistic (to me, at least!).

After initial drying, I joined the two pieces to create the proper feeder shape. After further drying, it was low fired in an electric kiln. I then applied oxides & glazes to the piece. It was then returned to the kiln for a second, longer high firing to cone 9/10 (high range).

To complete it, I added a braided leather cord, and inserted a branch from my garden into the prepared holes to be used as a perch. Can be used decoratively or functionally. Holds a small amount of birdseed, or a small plant, or succulents... they look pretty spilling over the sides.

Photo #2 shows the feeder compared to two other feeders that are on my site. It is the one on the left. The larger birdfeeder on the right is also available - see:

Note: branch included with purchase. You may use a dowel or a branch of your own choosing if desired.

Thank you for viewing my artwork!

As this item is hand created and pressed from real leaves, it is one of a kind and cannot be duplicated. It should provide a beautiful accent to any home or garden, and I hope you will enjoy it for many years.
