This primitive bird ornament is perfect for Easter gifts, Easter decorations, or rustic country farmhouse decor from Olde World Europe. Fill your Easter baskets with these lovely Spring pastels!

PRIMITIVE BIRD ORNAMENT (1) pastel purple.

Every mark of an old Dutch woodcarver's chisel is permanently cast here in these primitive European ornaments. The heavy porcelain figures feel as pure as the old blocks of wood from which they take their shape. Traces of woodgrain, crude carving marks, and locally windmill-ground pigments are beautifully exposed on each ornament's unglazed surface. After slipcasting from antique European biscuit forms and trimming, sanding and finishing each delicate piece, I have tied two strands of rustic sisal twine and crisp natural paper twine at the tops. These ornaments can be hung during special holidays, or hung from a rustic nail in a primitive farmhouse style wall grouping.

"...the quality of Laurie's work is outstanding. The ornaments have a very old world, weathered feel and texture. Like they have breathed in another age and place, when people dressed and spoke and lived differently..." - sayhitoshas, Amherst, MA
