A triangle shaped stoneware bird feeder. It has openings on all four sides for feeding. There is a drainage hole in the bottom. The feeder hangs from a stainless steel cable that won't rust or break over time. It comes with a natural twig for the birds to perch on. It has a natural clay finish on the outside and a metallic bronze glaze on the inside. I recommend safflower seed for use with the feeder. It attracts a variety of small birds and the squirrels are completely disinterested in safflower seed so they leave the feeder alone.

About the process:

There are a wide range of techniques one can choose in working with clay. Hand-building and throwing on the potter’s wheel are the primary methods I tend to use in my studio. The hand building method I used to create this piece involves using slabs rolled out (like a pie shell) on a piece of canvas. The wet clay is cut into the desired shapes and allowed to stiffen up until it can be handled. The pieces are then assembled and textured and slowly dried. I love the hand building process because it offers endless possibilities of shapes and design.

Once a piece is completely dry, it is fired for the first time. This is called a bisque firing. The second firing is called the glaze firing. Think of a glaze simply as a coating of glass which is fused to the surface of a clay piece during the kiln firing. It adds color, texture and strength to the piece. The glaze serves to waterproof the piece and to create an easily cleaned surface, as well as providing color and decoration. The color of a glaze after it has been fired may be significantly different from before firing. That's one of the things that makes the process so magical. You never know the final results until you open the kiln after a firing.

Cheryl it was a thrill to open your package; your ceramic bird feeder is absolutely gorgeous. We live in a Northeast Wisconsin forest and it just goes so well with the background. I immediately filled it and hung it directly outside of a window in my library that I can view it often. The first day already a few of our feathered friends had gathered for breakfast. I too am an artist and so appreciate your fine lines. Beautiful work. Thank you
