Description

Description of Naturally Barcelona:
When I cleaned away the rot and grime from these pieces of pine tree heartwood I discovered in the forest behind my home, the Catalian Modernism of Antoni Gaudi swept through my thoughts. The rolling bends, the absence of sharp angles, the sweeping repetition of shapes formed by Nature's mystic sculpting seemed to mimic the brilliancy of Gaudi. Especially striking was the section that I aligned below the entry door as a unique perch wrapped in heartwood expressing Catalian style peaks and curves. I have carved a feather into the extended portion of the wood that flows down past the base of the house. Facing the structure, the right hand decorative pine heartwood attached to the roof bends gracefully inward, attracting visual attention to the perch, while appearing as if it were a bird wing at the bottom of a power stroke in flight. All that motion is softened by the left "wing" gliding with smooth lines that flow down the roof via growth rings long since formed. The parallel growth rings seem to drip over and down upon another waiting perch. Shapes dominate. Balance and imbalance play on the mind's eye. Nature's creativity leads the way to humankind's genius revealed nearly 100 years ago through the brilliance of Gaudi of Barcelona, Spain. All I had to do was to assemble the work Nature provided!

The house mounts from the bottom using 3/8" pipe and does not come with a stand. It weights approximately 14 pounds and is built upon my standard "A" frame base using 1" x 6" pine lumber, and measures [length/depth/width] 12" x 14" x 17.5".

The top is not attached to the house structure, and can therefore be lifted off for easy access to the nesting area. This structure has been designed as a functional birdhouse. The final finish has been weatherproofed using a UV resistant clear liquid two part epoxy poured over the birdhouse surface, encapsulating the structure for impact resistance, limited solar protection, and finished for outdoors. Because I want this piece to last forever, I recommend it for limited outdoor but continuous indoor use - covered patio/deck, or sun room, etc.

The most unusual and beautiful birdhouse I have ever seen. This would make a wonderful gift for a special someone. I just happened to be that someone because I bought it for myself!
