Under Their Wing

Choose one of these colorful birds every day of the week to be your guide. Each one corresponds to an inspirational word, such as joy, courage, and generosity (a key is included for reference). Keep them where you need a little love, or give them to a friend so they can feel it, too. The decorative leaf-shaped plate keeps your "bird of the day" proudly perched, while the protective box makes for lovely gift-giving and storage. The birds are formed with ceramic molds and then hand-painted by artisans in Mexico. Created by Susan LeVine. Assembled in New York.

Key:
Green: gratitude
Light blue: love
Red: patience
White: honesty
Orange: courage
Dark blue: joy
Purple: generosity

Artist Susan LeVine was born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee where her love of nature was first ignited. A passion for art led her on a journey that began with a year of study in Italy where she was immersed in the beauty of artistic expression and the romance of the Italian culture. Susan's paintings of birds and trees are probably the greatest expression of her love of nature. she feels that nature is always talking to us if we stop to listen. Susan's product designs come from a desire to uplift the spirits of others and share a sense of wonder and celebration of life. Susan now lives in Santa Barbara, California where she gets out in nature as much as possible.

Whimsical and cute for the "likes nice things" crowd

By 

from Austin, Texas

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Guide Birds:

This makes a great gift for someone who has it all but still appreciates a quality, unique, thoughtful gift.

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was as expected. I'm used to free two-day shipping so having to pay for shipping is a drag. Similarly the gift-wrapping service is spendy, considering the lo-fi presentation upon arrival.

These Guide Birds are absolutely the best thing ever!!!

By 

from Pennsylvania

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • They bring joy into ones life.

Cons

  • 12 now only 7
  • Original set better. There were 12 now only 7.

Best Uses

    Comments about UncommonGoods Guide Birds:

    Please ask the artist to return to the "original concept" 12 birds. One for each month. It gives one a bit longer to embrace the "word" and incorporate it into daily life. They certainly do help make one a better person.

    Adorable and inspiring at the same time!

    Comments about UncommonGoods Guide Birds:

    The birds and the leaf they perch on are very appealing both to look at and to touch. And being able to choose the feeling that will inspire you that day is very unique. A very unusual and sweet gift!

        Comments about UncommonGoods Guide Birds:

        I sent these to a friends instead of flowers on the loss of her mom. I thought it would encourage her to stay and focus on the positive. She was truly touched by the concept and uniqueness of them.
