♦Used to attract cavity-nesting birds, this bird bottle securely mounts on a single nail but is easily removed to take inside for the winter. Unlike a wooden birdhouse this one will not fade, rot or ever need painting. With the drainage hole it will also never break from freezing. With a secure mounting, count on it to last indefinitely. I include a large-headed nail so all you need is a hammer and a tree, post or wall. Design is inspired by colonial-era models.

♦The best location for a ceramic bird house is out of direct sunshine -- under a shady tree or maybe under the shady eave of a house. When the perch stick needs replacing just use a dowel or chopstick. House wrens and Carolina wrens will be the most likely bird to take up residence though I have heard of others that also like it.

♦This bird bottle is approximately 7.5 inches tall and 4 inches wide at the rim.

♦I create my pottery from white stoneware clay that I throw by hand on a pottery wheel. I mix my glazes from recipes I have developed over the years. These glazes are nontoxic and safe for the microwave and dishwasher. Because finishing touches matter, I polish the bottom of each pot so that it is velvety smooth. I then inscribe my signature in the unfired clay for that personal touch. I include a studio card that tells you about me and my work.

♦If you need free gift wrapping, just let me know in "Notes to Seller" as you checkout. If you need your gift sent directly to the recipient, rest assured it will arrive quickly. When it does, it will be well-wrapped and expertly packaged. I will include a card, so let me know what names and message you would like on it.

♦This piece is in stock. I usually ship daily by Priority Mail so you should get your order in 2 to 4 days.

♦A recent convo:
I'm so happy with my birdhouse bottle! It's beautiful and adds so much to my garden. I will probably move it around from spot to spot until the Wrens find it and choose to nest in it. Meanwhile we will enjoy it's artistry and beauty. Thank you for an excellent product.

Frequently asked questions about DougSmithPottery

You can have a gift selection wrapped and shipped directly to the recipient and I will be happy to include a note so they know it's from you. There is a place to change the shipping address at checkout and you can leave your note for the gift card in the message box. I will not include an invoice and I will confirm by convo that I prepared your selection as a gift.
All my pottery is made with food safe glazes and may be used in the microwave, dishwasher and oven. For oven use it is best if you place the pottery into a cold oven that has not been preheated. This prevents a quick temperature change.

After a lot of use, the very white clay on the bottom of a pot can be quickly and easily rejuvenated by letting it sit in a shallow saucer of dilute bleach.
I securely wrap my pottery in layers of cardboard before boxing it for shipment. In the rare instance of breakage during domestic shipping, notify me right away so I can immediately send you a new one. Please send me a photo so I can write off the loss.
Running a one-person studio/shop does not allow me the time for special orders.
To keep my work uniform, I throw or glaze several dozen of the same kind of pot at a time. Because it is handmade, there will always be slight variations between the piece of pottery in the photos and the one I send you. All dimensions that I list are close, but approximate. Also, my accent glazes flow during the firing, so each piece has its own unique, serendipitous pattern.
I use a white background, "daylight" LED bulbs, and a large HD monitor to produce and post the most accurate photographs I can. Please be aware though that computer monitor settings vary so an EXACT match is not always possible.
