Artisan Pine and Clay Bird Shelters

By: Jennifer C  |  Under: Living / Yard / Landscape

Birds make little artisan nests from branches with their beaks, but humans like Nicaraguan master potter Jose Guerrero and a ten-woman artisan cooperative in the remote community of Cinco Pinos make these artisan Pine and Clay Bird Shelters. The ceramic upper shelters are handmade using a non-electric pottery wheel to sculpt the clay, which are then kiln-dried, and the "nest" base is constructed from handwoven gathered pine needles, acrylic, and nylon. Just hang this stylish, weatherproof bird shelter from a tree branch and one lucky bird will discover a cool housing alternative. Available in three styles in orange, blue, and green.
