Feather Your Nest.

"My mom often asks me, 'How did you learn to make all this stuff?' My answer is often, 'lots of mistakes,'" artist Margaret Taylor confesses. With her studio, Dancing Dryads, Margaret has made it her job to change the fate of discarded objects. Inspired by the fundamental beauty of paint and texture, she finds stunning ways to rescue these materials and transform them into artful, upcycled home and garden accents. Both sweet and silly, backyard birds are Margaret's muses in this lovely piece where she unites irregular pieces of painted and unfinished wood into the iconic shape of a perched bird atop a stylized piano key. This one of a kind art piece is sure to flap into the hearts of art and music lovers alike. Handcrafted in the USA.

      Love this bird-- thought there were three that came together, but only got one. However, I just love it. Mine has a ruler running down the middle and it is so cool and unique.

        I have to get more to add to this flock. They are a good size and cute as could be for someone looking for unique items for their home. I search for items that are not the same old and my bird fits the bill. Love it

          It hangs on the wall and spruces up the livingroom.

          It is unique. We enjoy it.

          Can not think of anything not great to say about it.

            I am looking forward to seeing this on my wall! I will note that my bird is unique among those pictured (neutral themed one) in that the bird's head is angled upward. I hadn't expected it though I still like the piece. Shipping was prompt.

            Was surprized that the item(art work) was not signed by the artist; this is disappointing to me. Stand up and claim "I did that". Other then that, beautiful and colorful. P.S. Use two screws to hang at proper angle. Thank-you.

                Beautiful art. Well sized. Nice neutral colors with a pop of aqua. The only complaint I have is the angle of the hanging wire, easily remedied, but it had the bird staring straight up to the ceiling and even angled backward a bit.

                      Really great product! Purchased this for my mom for mother's day and she loved it. However - make sure you DO NOT ORDER ANY SORT OF EXPEDITED SHIPPING! This product takes about 2-3 weeks to ship, but they still give you the option of ordering 2nd day, which I mistakenly did. Order the cheapest shipping.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        My only complaint is that this item came 2-3 weeks after I had ordered it. When I ordered it I didn't notice an extended time for delivery.

                        I would still recommend the gift because my mother felt it was "worth the wait"!
