Description

Ceramic Bird House
Textured Natural Stoneware Finish
Stainless Steel Cable (Rust Free)
Dimensions 6" High x 6" square
High Fired Stoneware
Ready to ship.

This triangle shaped ceramic bird house has natural stoneware finish on the outside and a bronze glaze on the inside. I is textured to give it a rustic finish. The opening is sized for small birds and located up from the floor of the house to provide shelter from predators. It has a rubber stopper in the bottom so the old nesting material can be cleaned out at the end of the season. A family has taken up residence in one of my birdhouses so I know the design has been approved. There are holes in the back to provide ventilation and a drainage hole in the bottom. It hangs from a stainless steel cable that will not rust or break over time.

About the process:

Hand building offers endless possibilities for shapes and designs and allows me to create pieces that cannot be produced using my potter’s wheel. My most commonly used hand building process is slab construction. The clay is rolled out (like a giant pie shell) on a piece of canvas. It is then cut into the desired shape and draped either into a form or around a form. As the clay dries, it retains the shape of the form. Once a piece is completely dry, it is fired for the first time. This is called a bisque firing. The second and final firing is a 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.
