Description:
Ceramic birds in a simple round silhouette that express a warm serenity.  The beautiful gradation on each bird, combined with its curious positioning, looking up or down, adds a whimsy and charm so the birds appear to be communicating with each other when placed together in a group.  Each bird comes with a thin rubber ring-shaped stand so that it sits peacefully in place.  Handmade in an atelier in Osaka, Japan - each bird is molded, carved, glazed and fired in small batches.

Small 3.5'' L x 1.75'' H
