Bird Bell with Turtle Pattern
This brown and green stoneware bird bell will not only look great in your house, on your porch, or in your garden, but sound wonderful as well!
The bird (known as "Pudgies" - a play on the Budgie) is a wheel thrown form that has been altered, and textured with a turtle pattern. The bell component is handbuilt from a textured clay slab. The leaf is cut from a clay slab, then incised.
Handmade chain, studio-made glass bead, and wire-solder connections complete the assembly. These beautiful bird bells are suitable for both indoor and year round outdoor display.
As with all handcrafted items, variations in color, size, and design are to be expected.
