Bird Sanctuary

Ceramicist Erik Hertz takes a fresh approach to his handcrafted birdhouses. Instead of the traditional boxy shape, he creates a rounded refuge that is both a work of art and a natural addition to the wooded landscape. Its small opening offers an inviting shelter to many varieties of bug-eating birds, like finches and wrens, while turning away larger, predatory species. Hertz's use of mottled, colorful glazes makes his birdhouses a welcome sight to the human eye as well. Handmade in Ocean Pines, Maryland.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

      It was slightly smaller than I expected but I hadn't read the dimensions. Actual bird house is the same as given dimensions.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Pottery Birdhouse:

      Beautiful ceramic bird house, just about the size we expected. The perch was too short and too thin, so we made our own from a small branch. It was easy to mount on a tree and will enjoy seeing it being used.
