Your Highness

Give backyard birds a royal welcome and a meal fit for a king with Jo-Ann and Gerald Warren's regal feeder. The artists start by stamping a lovely, Grecian pattern into stoneware clay that has been colored with a deep azure dye. Malleable slabs are then shaped into the top and bottom curves of the feeder and, to finish, the pieces are high-fired, sealing in the color and locking out moisture.

These fade- and weather-proofed pieces are then affixed to sustainably harvested bamboo boards. Bamboo is recognized as a renewable "noble grass" and is fully harvestable after just 3 years. It's cultivated without pesticides, herbicides or fertilizer and it's both water and rot resistant. Named for one of the artists' favorite apples, this sweet, spacious feeder will add a touch of majesty to your yard. Handcrafted in Canada. Comes with a hanger for easy wall or post mounting.

Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren

With a name like Amaranth, a mythical flower that is said to never fade, Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren's stoneware has a lot to live up to. Fortunately, it does, both in terms of beauty and durability. Using a firing process that can exceed 2000 degrees, Amaranth products are built to last, withstanding all elements and seasons, yet maintaining their signature charm. The Warren's make sure all their handmade stoneware is made in an environmentally friendly fashion and hope you take as much pleasure in their art as they do in exploring new ways to innovate current standards. collection

      Comments about EMPIRE BIRD FEEDER:

      This was a gift for my mother, so I can't comment on its usability. However, it is attractive and arrived in one piece, very well packed. I was nervous that it would arrive broken, after reading all the comments, but I had nothing to worry about.

      It's attractive. Beyond that, I gave it recently, so I haven't gotten to follow up yet.

        Comments about EMPIRE BIRD FEEDER:

        We received this beautiful birdhouse as a Christmas gift. Upon opening the box, it was broken around the curved base. There was no damage to the box it was packaged in or the box it was placed into for shipping. When I contacted UGoods they asked twice if it was broken due to shipping damage but considering the two boxes showed no sign of damage, I'd say the birdhouse is too fragile. I'm taking my credit and purchasing another birdhouse on this site. It is beautiful but based on our experience and previous reviews, I think my chances of another one arriving in one piece is low.

        Comments about EMPIRE BIRD FEEDER:

        My daughter thought this bird feeder would be a great gift for her dad. It has great lines and we loved the color and the mix of wood and ceramic. But when it arrived, both top and bottom ceramic pieces were broken. We didn't even unwrap the plastic protective covering. Customer service was apologetic and offered to send another (when they are back in stock...weeks to a month). Because CS didn't want us to return it, we too a shot a trying to salvage it. The ceramic wasn't screwed to the wood snugly, so everything teter-tottered, making it impossible to glue. A fragile design like this is going to need much more care during packaging.

                When the product arrived, I opened the box and found it to be broken. Luckily customer service is super awesome, and immediately sent me another one. My grandfather hasn't put it up yet, but he does think it'll be a great addition to the yard. So overall I give the item 3.5 stars with a potential extra .5 if it attracts the visitors we want.

                      I bought this for my mother for Mother's Day, and thought it would never get there in time as I bought it last minute. However to my surprise it arrived the next day or so and the shipping was free. My mother was very pleased and said it was beautiful, I'm excited to see it in her garden next time we visit.
