Bird ornament with Native Leaf impression (I3)
These little hand-built birds are made to perch anywhere indoors or out! Using our handmade bird cutter, we form each one by hand. Impressed with a plant leaves from our wild prairies and creek banks, they are all a little different. Twine is included, but they also have a metal hook for hanging.
This bird is impressed with leaves from Maypop (Passiflora incarnata), is also known as wild passion flower. In addition to its exotic purple flowers, it also makes edible fruit. It is the larval host to many of our favorite butterflies, including the Gulf Fritillary. Its vining habit and fast growth make it ideal for creating privacy screens that also feed our native bugs and birds.
These Birds measure about 8 cm from tail to beak.
Measurements may vary due to the handmade nature of our work. During updates, questions on sizes may not be answered immediately. Note that these are glazed pieces, and glazes pool and drip in unexpected ways. Each spent its time in a different spot in the kiln, and can never be recreated.
