Dots and Dashes Bird Feeder
Ceramic Bird Feeder
Hand built stoneware bird feeder extruded as a hollow tube. The bottom is closed by folding the clay like paper and compressing with a dowel. Feeding stations are formed by hand and the entire piece is coated with black slip. The top is created by using a press mold. Once the slip coating is dry enough to handle the decoration is obtained by carving through the slip coating revealing the white clay body, an ancient technique known as sgrafitto. The feeder is assembled using braided steel cable.
This piece can be displayed outdoors year-round in mild climates only. In colder climates, bring indoors during winter to avoid damage due to freezing temperatures.
