Ceramic birdhouse in Robin's Egg Blue glaze from renowned New Zealand painter and sculptor Gidon Bing. With a matte finish and soft muted tones, these birdhouses will welcome new friends to your back yard. Handcrafted from white earthenware and finished with traditional Japanese and Korean glaze techniques.
Includes 2.5' length of brass rod that needs assembly. Simply feed the end with the wooden ball inside the birdhouse and bend the top end into a loop so it can be hung from a branch. If you prefer, the birdhouse can also be hung with strong cord instead of the brass rod. Leave a note at checkout if you would like a length of hemp cord included.
Approx. 5" wide by 7" high
About the Maker
New Zealand painter and sculptor Gidon Bing works primarily in plywood sculptures out of his boat shed studio in Auckland's Hobson Bay. Using techniques learned from master craftsmen, Gidon also operates a ceramics studio, where he creates beautiful, functional objects perfect for everyday use.
As a teenager, Gidon spent time in Israel, in the artsy village of Ein Hod and then spent time studying anthropology, archaeology and religious studies at university. He learned traditional furniture making techniques during his time spent in ateliers in the Middle East and Europe, where he hand crafted furniture alongside classically trained craftsmen.
