Poetry Bird Wall Hanging Sculpture - Namaste - HandMade Organic & Rustic Stamped Word Pottery Bird, Asian Zen Welcome Plaque, Fine Art Sign
What a peaceful and beautiful word.
It represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us.
It is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another, or, put another way: "The LIGHT in me honors the LIGHT in you"....
A unique and wondrous clay Poetry Bird carries the Gift of Words, the Mystery of flight and quiet Inspiration for a peaceful place in your Home or the Perfect gift for someone Special, a beautiful Poetry Bird to remind us all to take Flight with our Words!
This beautiful Bird wall hanging is made from rolled out stoneware clay that has been completely hand cut, (body, wings, tail pieces) and I do not use forms or patterns, so every one is totally unique and different. While the clay is still "wet" I have impressed the wings and tails with a variety of stamps including vintage textile blocks from India that are about 100 years old,(and carved out of pear wood!), clay stamps I have made myself and even pieces of shells and pods I have collected on my journeys. I use Vintage Letterpress Wooden Stamps for the words on my Poetry Birds.
After the birds have been fired the first time I applied stains and then rubbed them off here and there to give the piece a rustic look, then I added a few colored glazes to accentuate the stamped designs on the wings and tails. Each Bird has been fired a second time for durability and strength to create an inspiring piece that can be hung indoors or outside in a protected area. On the back of each bird I have attached 2 hangers made from recycled copper wire so you can position the bird to fly either straight or tilting slightly upward....soaring into the Universe!
The Poetry Bird is about 14" wide and 7" tall and is signed and dated on the back by yours truly.
